I Would Dangle the Moon
Illustrator: Amber Moffat
Publisher: MidnightSun Publishing
“If I was a farmer, I would plant the moon in my field so you could watch it crack the earth as it grew.” So begins Amber Moffat’s debut picture book, in which she asks what you would do if you could pluck the moon from the sky. With its poetic rhythm and use of repetition, young readers will be drawn into this playful and whimsical version of the ‘what if’ question, which they’ll continue to contemplate long after they’ve reached the book’s concluding pages. While this book has been recommended for children aged 3 to 5, several junior reviewers in middle and upper primary were thoroughly enthralled by it. I Would Dangle the Moon is a wonderful invitation into creativity and the imagination. What would you do?
