We recently received this gorgeous book, Moon by Patricia Hegarty and Illustrated by Britta Teckentrup and I wanted to share our thoughts about it with you.
I was a bit cheeky and opened up our parcel when E was at my Mum’s, I just couldn’t wait! And I wasnt disappointed!
We read it for our bedtime story that night… Each page depicts a nightime scene from somewhere around the world, showing different animals that would be awake during the nightime in that part of the world. Alongside this, each page has a glistening moon and shows a different phase. As you turn the pages you can see the phases of the moon , from crescent to full moon and back again. The shiny moon was a real draw for E. She wanted to touch it on each page and at the end she was keen to spot the real moon out of her window! The illustrations are just beautiful, they captivated me as an adult and Evie was just as captured by them. The gentle text is short and rhymes which is great to maintain a little ones attention.
Evie has asked to share this book with me many times since we received it on Friday and she was excited to show her Daddy. I can see it becoming a firm favourite here.
As a parent I love the knowledge of the world aspect -the phases of the moon, how the moon effects things on earth, nocturnal animals. A great way to teach the wonders of our world to little people.
Have you read this book? What did you think?
