Four stars for children's book... For Those Who Stare at the Moon...

For Those Who Stare at the Moon

This book is a children's picture book that I think is a great story. The book is about a little girl who uses her imagination to journey to the moon. Children will love the illustrations as the little girl's journey pops off of each page. The illustrations allow children to accompany the little girl when she goes to the moon because her journey is vividly reflected. I commend the author for creating such a fun filled story for children who do look beyond the stars and am inspired by the fact that a portion of the book proceeds goes to the New Orleans Public Library Foundation. I hope that encourages parents or schools to purchase the book because every child deserves to own a book and the children who were affected by Hurricane Katrina aren't any different.

I gave this book four stars instead of five. The book doesn't have any punctuation or page numbers which I think helps a book flow successfully. In addition, the author uses the word, "flaying," out of context. I wish this author great success with this book and hope that educators and parents add this book to their libraries, children will enjoy it!
