I’ll Meet You Where the Moon Touches the Water by Jillian Rodriguez is a children’s picture book that would appeal most to a mixed audience of parents/guardians, teachers, and children. This is a story filled with a focused relaxation technique known as guided imagery technique, designed to help the reader/listener become calm. A little boy and his mother use their imaginations to take them on adventures as they see sleeping otters, travel by canoe, and even become pirates in the forest. Are you ready to follow this adventurous pair on their imagination journeys?

I’ll Meet You Where the Moon Touches the Water by Jillian Rodriguez is a well-written kids’ book with adorable pictures. As a psychology graduate student, I was intrigued by this use of guided imagery. While I have read about the technique, this is the first time I’ve seen it so well applied to a children’s book. I like how Jillian Rodriguez uses words and pictures to get the audience enthralled while also allowing them to use their own imagination to picture the whole adventure behind each page. This book does an excellent job of helping children calm down before bed. I believe it can relax their minds and put them into the right mindset to go to sleep. Overall, I was pretty happy with the effect this book had on the children I babysit for helping them to calm down before nap time.
