Before I Read: I look at the title and wonder to myself, will she catch the moon?

After I Read: I realize that she wants to catch the moon. She's not exactly doing it. I also realize the girl isn't a drawing.

I really don't think the collage style of illustrations works here. Certain pages remind me of my middle school science textbook in the early to mid 90s.

I was really excited about this book since my 2yr-old says all the time that he wants to "Catch the moon." But this book didn't really do it for me.

A story about a young girl's imagination and how she dreams how she will reach the moon from her bedroom window.
Imaginative, but a little too complex. We liked "Below" much better.
