There is a lot of work to be done before the sun greets the dawn. But with the help of Mr. Moon’s light, all the creatures of the night are able to do their jobs—cloud fluffers are fluffing, crooning crickets are performing, and cows are jumping over the moon.
All night long, Mr. Moon keeps watch, making sure the world is ready for a new day when you awake.
The colors and attention to detail on each two-page spread will engage and enlighten young readers, as well as their parents. Night changing to day and day to night are ideas that are taken for granted, but Paraskevas highlights how there is much to be done to make the transition smooth, and the average person might just see magic happen if they stay up to wish on a shooting star or try to see if the cow will really jump over the moon. 'Mr. Moon' is a whimsical read that dares readers to consider what is actually happening in the moonlight and how to take part in it until daylight once again sets in.
Even though the story is solid and incorporates unique ideas, it didn't hold the interest of my three-year-old quite as much as some other books; however, he did enjoy pointing at each picture and stating what it was. The illustrations made up for where the story was slightly lacking.
