This book teaches a good lesson about generosity. The students will have the opportunity to learn about giving instead of just receiving. This is a good book to incorporate near birthdays (obviously) or near Christmas when children lose focus of what the holidays are about.

This picture book tells a great story of a bear that wants to get the moon a present for its birthday. The bear travels all over to get the moon a hat and in the end looses it but they still tell each other that they love them and still remain friends. Genre, fantasy, as a bear wants to give the moon a present. Media, water colors. ( )

This is a great example of fantasy because the bear takes on human like characteristics.
I like this book because of the simplicity, and young children would enjoy the echo parts.
