Book Review: Moonday

April 12, 2014

The full moon hangs low in the night sky.  As a young boy and his parents drive home he watches as the moon seems to follow them.  He falls asleep only to wake up and find the moon in his backyard.  The boy is delighted to play with the moon while his parents try to decide what to do with it!  The townspeople struggle to stay awake as the moonlight keeps the town ready for sleep.

When the moon pulls the tide of the ocean into their backyard, the boy’s parents decide they’ve had enough.  Thinking back to how the moon came to be in their yard, the boy and his parents solve the problem of perpetual nighttime.

The next morning, things are as they should be, making readers wonder if the events were real or just a small boys dream.  This beautifully illustrated picture book by Adam Rex takes a fun and imaginative look at the moon

Thanks for a great review, Miss Terry!  And be sure to check out Moonday for yourself at the library. 

We'll have a deconstructed version of the book set up on easels for you to wander around and experience each page separately as a story walk at our 2014 SLP Kickoff held at the Main Library on Saturday, April 26th, from 11AM-3PM

We'll also have the Dome Theater set up in the 2nd floor lobby, which will be showing museum quality science based movies such as the "Night of the Titanic" and "Earth's Wild Ride."  You'll get a sneak preview of our Summer Library Programs for children, teens, and adults!  There will also be experiments, crafts, information tables, games, giveaways, and much more.

Don't miss out on the fun!
