Little Monica sees the huge moon in the sky and asks her daddy to pull it down for her; he does, the moon shrinks and disappears, and reappears in the sky.
If you like Carle's artwork you'll love sharing these extra-wide foldout pages with your kids.
Feminists will have a fit: Monica asks her Daddy to get the moon for her, and he does. (Woman needs man to get something for her; woman literally asking for the moon; etc.)
S/He was not horribly interested. The pictures are colorful but story makes no sense.
We can take it or leave it. The fact that the moon in the story shrinks and disappears, as the moon in the sky does, will be lost on some kids.
Lots of fold-out pages with Carle artwork.
The story teaches the phases of the moon, as Papa waits for the moon to wane and be small enough to carry home to his daughter.

Read with 5-year-old child.
Borrow. See if you like it, and see how you're child does with the pages. The fold-outs are nice, but they're still paper.
