The Love of the Moonlight

  • Interest Level: Kindergarten - Grade 3
  • Reading Level: Grade 2

“If we loved, much like the moon, then would we be as kind?”

On a sleepless night, while gazing up at the skies, a child realizes that the world would be a better place if we acted with empathy and understanding. Around the world, we all look up at the same moon and it shines down on each person equally. The moon isn’t afraid to share its sky with the stars; the moon knows the stars don’t take away its ability to shine. This heartfelt, rhyming story is a great conversation starter on kindness and equality for children with illustrations capturing all walks of life.
