Description: In the middle of the night the world can seem huge and frightening, especially when youve just moved far from home. On Abena and Kofi first night in America, it is late and it is dark and they are up worrying. What if a giant lizard or a slender-snouted crocodile crawled into their suitcases? What if the people in their new school laugh at them? What if they forget Grandmother and their cousins, now that they are an ocean away? But Abena knows a secret to help them. It is a secret that can make the world and the night seem small again. She reaches for her new flashlight and turns it on. She says to her little brother, Kofi, Pretend this is the moon. Close your eyes. And then she begins . . . (32 pgs) Ages 4-8

Ashay says, "Great story, its actually a story within a story as Abena comforts her younger brother. Actually this a wonderful story that is written in such a way that includes two West African tales. Get it for the classroom and library."
