Bringing Down the Moon (paperback),
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bringing Down the Moon (Paperback)
Lovely story about a mole who notices the Moon for the very first time and decides he's going to 'Bring Down the Moon' for himself. However Rabbit, Squirrel & Hedgehog know the Moon is too far away but Mole continues to try bring down the moon by climbing trees, poking sticks up at the sky and throwing acorns. This resulting in falling from trees and landing in puddles.
Finally after Mole fails they all stand and admire how beautiful the moon is and Mole then agrees with the others that 'It's not as near as it looks'.
Bought for our 2 year old son who loves books, animals and is fascinated with the moon so a good combination. A lovely story for the child and the adult who's reading it. Large print text for perhaps age 6-8 years who can read out loud. Nice illustrations in gentle 'sleepy like' colours.
I will probably purchase 'the best gift of all', 'no place like home' and 'diamond in the snow' which are other books by Jonathan Emmett & Vanessa Cabban as our son continues to keep bringing us this book to read so it's obviously a hit.
