In this enchanting tale of the origins of the Sun and the Moon, the Sun flies across the universe on an adventure to look for someone whose light matches his own. When the Sun Met the Moon is a story filled with so much love, excitement, and equality that you won't want to put down, and can be told for years to come. After centuries of brightening up the sky by himself, the poor Sun is exhausted, lonely, and in need of some help. So, he decides to search the galaxies for someone whose light is as strong and powerful as his to help him shine down on the people of Earth. When the Sun decides to take a holiday to go on this adventure, Earth is left with its first-ever nighttime where the sky goes dark and cold, leaving people afraid to come out of their homes. Will the Sun be able to find somebody whose light is equal to his? Find out in this gorgeous love story how the Sun met his perfect Moon.
In this charming story by Simran Mohinani, Mr. Sun is worn out from being the only provider of light and he desperately needs help. He is overjoyed to find that Lady Moon is available to light up the dark night, and together, they build a great partnership.
When the Sun Met the Moon is a gorgeous hardback book, and its simple text and colorful illustrations are perfect for toddlers and beginning readers. It is a wonderful way to introduce children to the importance of the sun, the moon, and the stars, and the difference between day and night. Mohinani's story also mentions love, marriage, and working together, and even though God and His Creation are never mentioned, they can easily be included when parents and children read this book together. I love it when a book is both entertaining and educational, and these descriptions certainly apply to When the Sun Met the Moon!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher and iRead Book Tours. There was no obligation for a favorable review.
