I Took the Moon for a Walk

Embark on a dreamy, nighttime jaunt with a young boy and the moon. Overcoming a fear of the dark and discovering the world at night lives at the heart of this poetic tale. Includes notes about the moon and plants and animals that thrive in the wee hours.

Ages 1 to 7 years

Written By: Carolyn Curtis

Illustrated By: Alison Jay


This is a cute story with lovely illustrations. All three of my kids enjoyed the rhyming aspect. Owen (age 5) liked pointing out all the "night creatures" in each picture and Aiden (age 7) absolutely loved finding the tiny spaceship on a couple pages. Olivia (age 2) has listened intently to me read the story several times since we got it so I know she likes it too. The board book is sturdy and I'm sure will hold up well in our family :) I Took the Moon for a Walk is a delightful bedtime story.

Thanks so much to Barefoot Books for sending us this delightful book to review!
