Sun and Moon by Local Artist Lindsey Yankey

Our featured book of for the month is the beautifully illustrated and eloquently written children’s book the entire family will love!

I spoke with artist, Lindsey Yankey at the Strawberry Swing Holiday Market. Immediately taken in by her lovely illustrations, I wanted to take this book home with me!! But she only had one for display.  My daughter took Lindsey’s business card and taped it to her wall!

Here’s a synopsis of the book:

Sun and Moon

Sun and Moon have always held their own places in the sky, but after a lifetime of darkness Moon wants to trade. Sun agrees, but only if first Moon takes a careful look at his night, before making his final decision.

Follow Moon as he travels through the dark discovering enchanting animals and scenes unique to the nighttime, foxes hunting, children dreaming, lamplighters, and fireflies. Will Moon still wish to change places in the sky? Or will he realize the beauty of what he already has?

Fine details amidst bright bold mixed-media illustrations will capture readers of all ages in this story of discovery and appreciation.
