What would you say if your child thought the moon was broken?

~ a review ~

The Moon is Broken!

This is a sweet little rhyming picture book. It takes a look at perfection. It's a science, creation, and perfection lesson without sounding like a lesson. The Moon is Broken by Monique B. Martin is an excellent book for all children. Being written in rhyme makes it easy and fun to read aloud. Highly recommend. 

A simple lunar lesson belays a deeper message of acceptance and trust in The Moon is Broken!
Children learn in layers. Every day they are building upon their primary foundations of understanding. Monique B. Martin charmingly demonstrates how children view, process and learn from the world around them in The Moon is Broken!, a rhyming story written for children ages 3 to 8, yet easily relatable for children of all ages. It explains why the moon appears to change shapes and exemplifies how all of God’s creations are made with perfect purpose. The Moon is Broken! e-book version is also available in Spanish.As the young girl in The Moon is Broken! looks out her window before bed, she sees that the moon is a crescent, no longer a circle, and she fears a piece has broken off. She looks for the piece of moon but can’t find it and she wonders why God hasn’t noticed it is broken and fixed it. Is he sick? Is he sleeping? Where is he? She runs to her mother, who explains the movement of the moon around the earth and why it appears to change shape.The Moon is Broken! teaches its small listeners and readers that appearances do not tell the whole story. The mother explains the importance of trusting in God and his design.Children with special needs, infants, toddlers, preschoolers and elementary children all will enjoy and learn from this sweet story that will leave them knowing, feeling, that they are exactly as they are supposed to be. - Goodreads
