Overview

I Touched the Moon! is a unique picture book that combines five timeless stories for young children with crafts that complement each story. Annick Press developed I Touched the Moon! in conjunction with Crazy Quilt, a popular television show that encourages young children to create simple crafts from everyday household items.

When storytelling and reading are accompanied by creative craft activities, children can develop a rewarding experience combining play and early literacy.

The craft activities are illustrated with easy-to-follow directions, and the materials required are clearly laid out at the beginning of each activity section. A different illustrator has produced the artwork for each story.

Contents: The Golden Goose illustrated by Alice Priestley

A
traditional tale of a sticky golden goose who succeeds, where all else has failed, in making a young princess laugh again.

Craft:Create finger-puppet dolls from toilet paper rolls of all the story's characters: the goose, the king, the princess, the baker, the blacksmith, the old woman and Thaddeus.
My Messy Parents illustrated by Kitty Macaulay

Nadya is tired of her parents' mess. She tries to tell them that everything has a place, but they won't listen. When they actually start to clean up, all sorts of things go missing - including Nadya and her little brother, Max!

Craft:Easy-to-make finger puppets from construction paper. Make Mom, Dad, Nadya, and baby brother Max.
The Mouse and the Elephant illustrated by Vlasta van Kampen

A small brown mouse is in a hurry to prove he is the smartest and bravest and fiercest creature in the whole world, and he hunts out an elephant to prove it. At the end of the story he is as disillusioned as he was when he began his quest.

Craft:Make puppets with party blowouts of all the characters in the story: the mouse, the elephant, the lizard, the ladybug, and the warthog.
I Touched the Moon! illustrated by Suzane Langlois

When the Court Magician has exhausted all his ideas, a young girl shows a spoiled prince how to get what he wants. She cleverly reveals a simple way to touch the moon.

Craft:Create a moon, a crown you can wear, and all the things the prince tries to use to touch the moon - a ladder, a rainbow, and wings.
Tug-of-War illustrated by Eugenie Fernandes

One hot day a little turtle wanders down to the river. Before he can swim, he must first outwit a hippo and an elephant. After winning the tug-of-war, he proves himself the best sport by sharing his river with everybody.

Craft:Create the river and the tree that the little turtle hides behind, and then make the turtle, the hippo, and the elephant to play with.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Based on a popular Canadian television series called Crazy Quilt, I Touched the Moon!: Stories and Crafts for Kids combines art and literacy to fun effect. Editor Barbara Mains brings together five tales adapted from a variety of traditions. Simple instructions show how to re-create the characters out of everyday materials. ( Oct.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Developed in conjunction with the Canadian TV show Crazy Quilt, this book features five short stories and craft projects that serve as story enhancements. "The Golden Goose" contains some basic elements of "The Princess Who Never Laughed," but in this version, the goose's owner, a young woodcutter, departs with a satisfying "Thank you" from the king, without any thought of marriage to the princess. The accompanying craft, like those for the other stories, uses paper, felt, cardboard tubes, and other easily obtainable materials. For the most part, the directions are for puppet characters that children (or adults) can use to retell the story or to invent new versions of it. In "My Messy Parents," a neatnik must deal with her childishly messy parents. In "The Mouse and the Elephant," a mouse refuses to be daunted by his small size and is always supported by his superior self-image. In "I Touched the Moon," a spoiled prince is finally satisfied by touching the moon's reflection in a pond instead of the real thing. "Tug-of-War" is a traditional tale in which a turtle tricks the larger animals in a tug-of-war challenge, and wins access to the river. Colorful watercolor illustrations mesh perfectly with the stories' action. The instructions for the projects are clearly described in small, easy-to-follow increments, with small pictures and color photos of the finished products. No patterns are included. An additional purchase to extend craft collections.-Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, Waterford, NJ Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
