Reviewed by Jessyca Garcia for Readers' Favorite The Moon in Daytime by Leigh Kamraoui is a cute tale. Alex wonders why the moon is still in the sky in the daytime. He sets out to question some night-time animals as to why. The animals all have different answers, but none of them satisfy Alex. Leigh Kamraoui did a great job on this book. I decided to read The Moon in Daytime to my 5-year-old daughter for bedtime. It just happened that the moon was in the daytime sky this day and my daughter had the exact same question as to why. She really liked this book. She thought the animals’ answers were funny, especially the cream cheese one. She also loved that Alex carried a bunny with him everywhere, just like she does. My favorite answer was the swan on the moon who is reading. I have never heard of that before. I loved that the story rhymed. It had a really nice flow to it. I thought that the illustrations are bright and nicely drawn. I also liked that the answer Alex finally receives is the correct one. I like it when authors sneak some educational stuff into their stories. The kids never realize that they are actually learning something. I will definitely be recommending this book to people, especially to my daughter’s pre-school teachers who are currently talking to their kids about the moon. I look forward to reading more of Leigh Kamraoui’s work in the future.
