Book: Happy Birthday, Moon

Happy Birthday, Moon
by Frank Asch

Ageless orb
Hanging about

Will you still be around

When the stars fade out

Note: I got this book on a whim at the library. Bears seem to be very popular with the 2-3 year-old set. The plot is simple: Bear talks to the moon. The moon “answers.” Bears doesn’t realize it’s his echo. Bear gets the moon a special birthday gift – a hat. Turns out moon shares his birthday – because of the echo effect – and “gets” him a hat as well.

Sweet enough to make you smile, but not enough to give you a cavity. Use it as a gentle bedtime story or a science introduction to sound theory. For now, we’re just letting Nick enjoy the story’s magic. Let him discover the wonder of sound waves when he’s older.
