The Moon Remembers

HarperCollins/Clarion. May 2023. 40p. Tr $19.99. ISBN 9780358682325.
PreS-Gr 1–Goodale paints a beautiful picture of the passage of time while also creating a story about welcoming a new member of the family. A short, simple sentence structure complements the large, subtle images that cover each page, and is engaging enough to hold the attention of younger children at story hours or at bedtime, while the sentiment behind the tale will also resonate. The heartfelt message of growing up and remembering who you are is a message that can be passed down through generations and makes this book a good choice for units on family histories, intergenerational storytelling, and more.
VERDICT A book that is both beautifully written and illustrated.
