At This Very Moment wasn't a huge hit with my niece and nephew. My niece liked it ok, but I think it's probably just a hair too young for her at this point. My nephew didn't really listen to the book much, but when we got to the page of the owl nesting inside the saguaro cactus he did say, "Amy, did you know that there is water inside cactuses?" I was pleased to learn that he knew this! Reading to kids is such a great time to discover what they have learned!
I agree with Cheryl in CC NV's review
that this book does have a great hook. It's soothing, and would be a great bedtime story, as it winds the kids down to sleep time. Lovely illustrations, too, especially the images of sun setting on water.
