The Night The Moon Was Hiding

I wrote, "The Night The Moon Was Hiding," when my children were little. One night while putting the kids to bed, my children asked, "How do you write a book mommy?" I told my children that a person just makes up a story and they asked what kind of story we could write. I then shared with my children that when my niece was younger she needed to say goodnight to the moon before she went to bed, but one night my niece couldn't find the moon and she was so sad. I told the kids we could write about the night the moon was hiding and that is how this story began. These are the first two pages:

The night the moon was hiding we looked all through the sky, but all that we could see where the birds flying by.

The night the moon was hiding we looked all through the trees but all we could find there was a cooling summer breeze.

Another interesting fact is that the family that is illustrated in the book is my family. You will see that the book shows my children at the age when this story was first written. I enjoyed cuddling up with my children at night and reading this story to them. Even though they are much older now, I still cherish those memories. My hope is that you enjoy reading this book to your children as much as I enjoyed reading it to mine.

Julie also thought it would be wonderful to have a song made about the story. It was David Sharpe who put her words to music.

About Julie Dart

Julie Dart studied child development at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, and graduated in 1991 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Development. Julie was a pre-school teacher and director for 10 years, and adored working with children and helping them to have high self-esteem. Now that her two children are older, Julie is accomplishing this goal by writing inspirational children's books.

Other books soon to come from Julie are: The Night the Moon was Hiding and the The Adventures of Jimmy and his Red Jacket.

About five years ago I realized I wanted to connect with my passion of passions and write children's books, and I shared that with my friend and agent Lloyd Russell.

In 1997, I was pregnant with my son John and riding BART into San Francisco from Fremont. I remembered how I was bullied in middle school and how awful it felt, so I wanted to find a way to help children get through something like that. While riding BART I had the idea for Ellie.

In 2013 I decided to self publish this book, so I finish the story of Ellie. I was a little afraid to begin but then my friend Julie and her beautiful daughter Sophia Claire, whom I have named my official “executive assistant,” sent some sketches after reading my manuscript. That was the push I needed! Ellie and her friends came to life.

All my life I have wanted to help inspire people to believe in themselves. This book is one of my dreams come true: for this story to uplift someone and let them know that they can accomplish anything they want to.

I hope you too, will feel that there isn't anything you can't do.

I believe in dreams and I believe in you.
