The Moon is Broken is a lyrical bedtime story that explores the power of imagination and friendship, while teaching children about the phases of the moon. When a little boy looks out his window to say goodnight to the moon, he’s shocked to see that the moon is broken! There’s only one thing to do: he and his animal friends must think of ways to fix it. After coming up with plans involving everything from band-aids to stegosauruses to birthday cake, ultimately the boy learns that the true secret to mending the moon is time.
“It is a beautifully written bedtime story about a little boy’s imagination when he sees the moon (first quarter) and thinks it is broken. The author takes young toddlers/preschoolers on a journey to repair the moon.”
“The illustrations are amazing. The little boy imagines being lifted by balloons, flying on a dragon, climbing up a giraffe’s neck- to get up to the moon.”
“The illustrations really set it apart”
“The whimsical ideas of getting to the moon during the boy’s brainstorming has a certain charm. This fantasy portion of the moon could segue to more factual discussions of the moon, how far it is, how we have visited the moon, etc, if a child was interested in learning more about the moon.”
“All in all, a satisfying read that I think kids will enjoy and adults will enjoy with them as they make the moon a focus.”
“I love this book, the writing and the illustrations. It is very sweet”
