Squishy Face is frightened when she wakes up and sees the full moon shining through her window. But her mother (Big Mama) takes her fear away by telling her all about the moon, its phases, and its influence on the oceans.

It looks as if a child did it, which works in a book created for children, but at the same time, it's a very roughly put together book. The children liked the story - we read it one night while sitting outside looking at the moon, and they were really excited about t ...more

Very cute read for parents and children alike. If they are curious about the moon, this is a nice book to introduce them to the many phases of the moon.

A paperback copy was provided for an honest review.
