Foreword Reviews


A boy hears the call of an owl, feels the pull of the moon, and communes with a giant oak. Wake, from Shawn Dougherty, follows his dreamy nighttime foray into the surrounding woods. Watercolors from Leah Busch complement the boy’s quiet inner musings as he expresses his love, respect, and wonder at the world around him, marveling as the northern lights and star-filled sky softly fade, and embracing the dawning light of the morning sun.
