Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have I bought this for my granddaughter and she's almost 3 years old and it's one of her very favourite books. When I first started reading it to her, I changed the names whereby the little girl had her name and the papa, became what she calls her grandfather. I keep the book at my house, and just today she asked me to tell her the story. She said "I don't have the book at my house, only at yours, and sometimes I want my daddy to read it for me when I'm going night-night, so you have to buy me one for my house". So I'm off to Indigo this afternoon to get her another copy. It's an attractive little book and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from another beautiful active book from Eric Carle Author Eric Carle (The Very Lonely Firefly, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Very Busy Spider) excels in creating books that offer children more than words on a page -- he consistently incorporates additional elements (lights, holes(!), textures) that make the books even more interesting to thirsty little minds. In this book, a smaller portable version of the original, a girl asks her father for the moon. Fold-out pages complement Carle's unique illustrative style as we discover a looooooong ladder that reaches to the moon and back, and a magnificent four-page center spread revealing the full moon in all its glory. This fantastic tale for young children is sure to delight parents and kids

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must for Every Father & Child My daughter at the age two was absolutely fascinated with the moon. Every night she would look outside for the moon and if she could not find the moon, would ask her dad to wake up the moon. So, when I first saw this book I just knew my daughter and hausband had to share this story together. I bought the book for my daughter to give her Dad for Father's Day and it is now their favourite story. There's one thing my husband did that makes this story even more wonderful, he changed the daughter's name to our daughter's and has replaced Pappa with Daddy when reads it. So, to my two and a half year old she thinks the story is all about her and her Dad. Thank you Eric Carle for writing such a wonderful story that our family truly relates to.
