INGRAM Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me (Board Book)

Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me In this unique and delightful picture book, the story literally unfolds as pages open dramatically, extending both outward and upward. Monica wants the moon to play with, so her Papa sets out to get it for h...er. It isnt easy to climb all the way up to the moon, but he finally succeeds -- only to find that the moon is too big to carry home! The way in which this problem is solved is a joyful surprise. Here is a multi-faceted story that appeals to children visually, verbally and emotionally, and which also contains a first lesson in natural history, depicting the eternal cycle of the waxing and waning of the moon. The simple text, just right for reading aloud or for the beginning reader expresses perfectly the purity of a fathers love for his child. Small readers will empathize with Monicas longing for the moon, and will be reassured by her fathers willingness to try to make her wish come true. And, on a deeper level, they will recognize that Papa is not merely fulfilling Monicas whim, but is demonstrating to her that even a seemingly unreachable goal can actually be attained. Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me is a book to be re-read many times, and to be treasured for its beauty and its positive message of love and inspiration.
