The first time I picked up Moonday by Adam Rex I only looked at the pictures. BEAUTIFUL illustrations help to tell the story of the day the moon comes out of the sky and hangs in a girl’s backyard. It’s so imaginative and something I think most children wish would happen to them! I love how the story also follows the town and answers the question, what would happen in our town if the sun did not come up one day?
This is the perfect book to aid in a teacher’s writing lessons. It would be great for teaching detail because the girl describes what the moon looks and feels like. The word choice in book is exceptional and could help to light up your own students’ word choice in their writing.
