A determined child goes the extra mile to try to cheer the lonely half moon
Have you ever looked up at the half-moon hiding in the night sky and thought it looked just the littlest bit lonely without its other half?
Imagine . . .
having no one to glow with no one to play with no one to share how much you like puppies and big, fuzzy bears.
If you’re like this determined young child, you might stay up every night to keep the moon company. Maybe if you share your treats and toys and stories, you’ll cheer him up.
But the moon is very shy, so it might take some time. Still, if you’re very very patient, you just might make a new friend.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Beautifully illustrated rhyming read-aloud The rhyming sing-song rhythm of the story makes for great read aloud fun. And the stick-to-it-tive-ness of the protagonist is admirable - the child simply won't give up on making the moon whole again, and they find their other half as well (a theme repeated visually throughout). Don't miss the giant moon on the case cover. The illustrations are expressive and adorable.
