I found a sweet, comforting story online that is so perfect for bedtime reading with little ones!
I'll Follow The Moon by Stephanie Lisa Tara
"On a quiet moonlit beach, a baby green sea turtle stirs from a dream of home. Slowly, slowly with a tap, crick, crack, the baby turtle embarks upon a mysterious nighttime journey. Gentle tender verse and enchanting illustrations carry this tranquil tale from sand to sea."
"Once afloat, he soon comes face to face with "eyes like mine" in his new watery home."
With delightful illustrations of flippers gliding through the salty air and a warm story line with the moon sparkling above, we have a very educational and entertaining book for young families. The repetition of the rhyme will draw you in with this sweet, comforting story telling. I love this one and recommend to friends with little ones.

About the Author
Stephanie Lisa Tara credits an overactive imagination for her whimsical, story-verse style. As a child, Stephanie transformed people and pets into animated personalities through fanciful lyrical rhymes. No one was safe! Stephanie earned a B.A. in English literature and poetry at the University of Connecticut. She spent the next ten years writing ad copy in Manhattan. After the birth of her daughter, Madeline, Stephanie decided to focus on her passion--children's verse, which she deeply believes has the inherent power to charm, inspire, and teach children and adults alike. Tying verse together with insight means magic for Stephanie. Her work is inspired by literature's lauded children's authors--from Grimm to Lear to Seuss.
The book won a Chocolate Lily Award (2007) and Mom's Choice Awards (2007)
