My Review:

Luna Luna is a short children's picture book filled with teaching aids.

Roshi is a small boy set on capturing the moon one evening armed with a butterfly net. The readers will follow him on his journey and become enchanted with not only the story but the beautiful illustrations, as well.

This is a wonderful book to help children understand perseverance and striving for things you want. Instead of expecting someone to lasso the moon for him, Roshi went out and tried to get it himself. The book will lend aid to their imagination and help with vocabulary all while being visually stimulating. As an adult I loved the layout, the color choices, the simple story, and the lessons within.

Children will love this story!  I highly recommend Luna Luna as your newest bedtime story!
