Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0735812497, Hardcover)

Once upon a time it was dark at night and the animals couldn't see a thing. They ask the sun for help and he presents them with a wonderful surprise, a beautiful crescent moon that grows larger and rounder night by night. At first the animals are grateful, but soon they start taking the sun's gift for granted. Hurt and angry, the sun takes the moon away, then reconsiders, and comes up with a way to light the night for the animals that will always remind them to appreciate his generosity.?Coby Hol has created a sweet, simple picture book that introduces very young children to the waxing and waning of the moon and offers a gentle reminder to all to value Nature's gifts.

The sun gives the moon as a gift to the animals so that they can see at night, but he makes it wax and wane to remind them to appreciate the gift.
