The artwork is as simple as it gets, but together with the story, "Moongame" had the tendency to draw me in. Bear and Bird play hide and go seek, a new game to Bear. Liking it, having played it all day with Bird, he asks the moon to play. Easily, the moon spots Bear hiding in a hollowed out tree. When it comes for the moon¿s turn to hide, it hides behind a big cloud. Bear searches high and low for the moon, mistaking a flower, a wheel of cheese, and a yellow balloon for it. Eventually Bird teams up with Bear again and they beseech the other animals of the forest to search. Giving up, Bear signifies his defeat to the moon. The moon appears from the clouds and Bear smiles and dances; the image of bear dancing incited a great joy within myself. The sequence of events the pictures dictate, along with the story are executed cleverly, hilariously, and reflect a spellbound glorification of nature, for what the author imagines it to be: childlike, innocent and beautiful (An example, Mr. Asch turns the moon into an active character, capable of playing children¿s games such as hide and go seek). I really enjoyed this book.

A bear learns how to play hide and seek, and decides to play with the moon at night. The wording in this story is extremely simple, and would probably make a good story for pre-kindergarten or kindergarten age children. They can count up to the number ten along with the book, and learn the rules of hide and seek. The artwork in this book takes up most of the pages, and adds to the playful quality.

Perfect book for the child who loves hide and seek and the moon! We just got this book and I've already read it to my son over a hundred times! My 2 year old cannot get enough if it!
