With You Always, Little Monday
Geneviève Coté


When you look at the moon, what do you see? For some cultures it is a man, for others a rabbit.

Geneviève Coté’s tender and beautifully illustrated With You Always, Little Monday is about a young orphaned rabbit that sets out to find his mother. He asks his neighbours Bear, Swan, Chipmunk, Frog, and even Skunk if they are his mommy; each explains why she is not. One night, curled asleep in the moonlight, he wakes to find his mother, a rabbit just like him, smiling at him from her moon-home. Watching over him, and lighting his way, his mother has always been there.

This sweet and moving picture book is destined to be read and reread at many bedtimes. mRb
