When I was a kid, there was an older couple that lived across the street. Mr. Bill and Mrs. Clara often sat on their porch swing. We loved to go over and sit on their porch and listen to Mr. Bill tell funny stories about “the man in the moon.” I agreed to review A Kite for Moon because the idea of a boy with an unlikely friendship with the moon reminded me of Mr. Bill, and that made me smile.
A Kite for Moon
Did you know that in July, our nation will celebrate the 50th anniversary of
the first U.S. moon landing? Astronaut Neil Armstrong took what was touted as, “one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”
A Kite for Moon is a nod to Neil Armstrong, and to all children everywhere who have ever considered Moon a friend. It is an endearing story about a boy who’s childhood love for Moon fueled him through years of studying, learning, and training to become an astronaut.
A Kite for Moon has over 20 beautiful illustrations. This book could stand alone on the illustrations, but it doesn’t have to because the story is just as beautiful and inspiring as the illustrations are.
A Kite for Moon is a great book to add to your stack. It’s a great read aloud book, but would also fit perfectly into a unit study on space study!
