Overview

Through this illustrated tale about the moon stealing the sun's glory, children learn about the importance of humility and the dangers of pride.

This rhyming, rollicking tale tells of a crime of cosmic proportions: the moon, blinded by pride, fails to see the true source of his abilities-the light provided by the sun. He boasts of his ability to shine, to change shape throughout each month, and to swell the tides. One day, overwhelmed by a piercing ray of sunshine, the moon repents of his pride and changes his ways, and from that point on he is happy to reflect the sun's light.

This beautifully illustrated book introduces the concept of humility to children. Readers will be reminded that everything we have, including our gifts and talents, is from God. Just as the moon learns to boast only of the sun, children-and their parents-learn that to boast of anything other than the Son is utter foolishness.

    Have you ever studied astronomy? Do you remember which makes it

    Have you ever studied astronomy? Do you remember which makes its own light—the sun or the moon? A young lad is praying to God about a “cosmic story” which he had heard. The pompous moon brags and boasts each night about how his great light makes the darkness flee. Then one day something arises which gives lie to the moon’s claims. Can you guess what it is? And what lesson do you think the boy asks God to help him learn from the moon?

    This rhyming tale and the beautiful illustrations combine to introduce the concepts of pride and humility to children in a way that they can more easily understand them. In the back are some “Galactic Didactic” questions for discussion and a few “Did You Know?” facts about the moon. T. Lively (Tom) Fluharty is an accomplished illustrator whose artwork has appeared in such publications as Time Magazine, Sports Illustrated, and Focus on the Family. His wife Kristi holds a BA in technical journalism and homeschools their five daughters. Fool Moon Rising is a wonderful way to impress a very important Biblical principle on the minds of youngsters, reminding us all that everything which we have comes from God.

    Scary pictures and advanced language

    Although the message of this book is meaningful..."Be humble and focus on your worth in God", the pictures are pretty scary and the language is awfully advanced for any child under 8. I was expecting a much more toddler friendly book, visually and language-wise.
