This story is about a little bear that is trying to talk to the moon. its the moons birthday and the bear doesn't know what the moon wants. The bear goes on an adventure to talk to the moon. The illustrations in this are simple but very fun to look at. This book can be used to talk about the moon or birthdays. I find it very interesting when the bear thinks the moon is talking to him but really it is just he voice echoing in the distance. ( )

This is a fun, easy read for children about a bear who decides he is going to talk to the moon. He wants to wish the moon a happy birthday. The bear then also says it is his birthday too. The bear gets the moon a present and the moon gets the bear the same present. It ends with the moon and bear both losing their present but of course they remain friends. It shares the theme of friendship and that presents are not all the matters. This is an example of a modern fantasy book. ( )
