Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 19 reviews.
Kalla56 More than 1 year ago
I bought this book for my 2 yr.-old granddaughter to be read by her daddy (my son). The pages illustrate the phases of the moon, and many pages are foldouts for interactivity. My granddaughter was thrilled with the book, as was my son. Since the book is about a specific little girl who calls her daddy "Papa", if the child is too young to read, it's easy for the parent to change "papa" to the name the child calls her male parent(or to her female parent), and for the parent to substitute the child's name.

This is a very nice story which combines fiction with a science lesson about the phases of the moon. The pop ups are very nice and add interest to the story. Just a few words per page keep the child's interest. Nice illustrations.

This is a cute book. I like it in the board book version. It seems more solid and is easy for my little one to handle. I like the different pop ups.

Eric Carle is a favorite and usually pick one of his books as a gift for parents of new babies, new babies, toddlers, etc. His books are always colorful, creative and incite imagination.

My preschool grandson loves this one. He likes to talk about how the moon changes in size and he loves the fold out pages. It is a cute story. Reminds me of my grandfather telling me he would get the moon for me if I wanted it.

My daughter loves the moon and was so excited when I read this book to her. We replace the little girls name with her name. She asks for this book every night.

My teacher got this book for me and I used to read it like crazy! I love Eric's stories. This one has to be my favorite!

This book is so wonderful. My father used to read it to me every night before bed. I still have my original version and plan to read it to my children someday. I'm buying this book now for little cousins so they can also enjoy this book. I highly recommend it.

My daughter loves to read and has tried to do so since the age of 2. She loves stories that explain things and this book is excellent. Without getting too complicated, it describes the phases of the moon and provides easy to read text for all ages. I also teach two year olds in a daycare center and they love all of Eric Carle's books and this is sure to be a favorite.

If you've read James Thurber's Many Moons, you will recognize the concept. Carle's illustrations will entertain pre-schoolers. For kids over 4, stick to Thurber's version.

this book is really great for little kids- the story is simple and imaginative at the same time and the illustrations are wonderfull. the night theme also makes it ideal for bedtime.

I bought this book because I was buying 'Where is Baby's Mommy' and wanted to give equal time to my husband. OOPS. My son could not bear this book. Also, I don't like the philosophy behind it -- where the daughter keeps making outrageous demands and the father gives in. Okay, maybe I'm being a bit literal, but my son hated it so much, that I was relieved when the book ripped and I could in good conscience stop trying to get him interested in it.
