Oh what a lovely sweet book this is, an author and an artist. Silhoutte Cutting. A story of love and family and a sprinkle of magic.
I just love childrens books, keeps this old heart of mine a wee bit softer and kinder.

Mama, Let's Make a Moon, is a very creative tale about some kids who want to create a new moon. They pick random things from around them, as random as they can find. They end up creating the most beautiful moon and walking the stair steps to heaven just to hang their moon and adore it.
I really enjoyed this book because I love artistic creativity. I would use this in a classroom to encourage creativity in my kids.

This evocative, spectacular book is a new favorite! I read the library copy and immediately ordered my own copy. The cut-paper silhouette illustrations are striking, the use of language, the content...all of it is just wonderful! I have to find out if there are more books by this author!

Beautiful book that reads like a song. Would be great at a preschool-K storytime! Both the story and images are fantastic!

Interesting woodcut style illustrations, but the plot is meh with a folklore twist. Stick with Papa Get the Moon for Me instead!
