Review: A Kite for Moon by:Yolen/Stemple/Phelan

 A Kite for Moon
**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:
A Kite for Moon, written by New York Times bestselling author of How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? Jane Yolen and her daughter, Heidi E. Y. Stemple, tells a heartfelt story about a young boy's fascination and unlikely friendship with the moon. With whimsical illustrations by award-winning artist Matt Phelan, the story begins when the little boy, who is flying his kite, notices a sad Moon. He sends up kites to her, even writing notes to Moon promising he will come see her someday. This promise propels him through years and years of studying, learning, and training to be an astronaut! Dedicated to Neil Armstrong, and a perfect children's book to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first United States moon landing, the cover of this book will captivate readers with eye-catching spot UV, foil, and embossing.

My Review:
 We always here about the man in the moon. What if it were really true? A Kite for Moon, takes us on a journey with the main character of the book who believes the moon looks really sad. This little boy decides he is going to change that by developing a friendship with the moon.

 The sweet little imagination of this precious little boy leads him on an adventure that changes his life. Eventually, his life revolves around further study of the moon and he becomes an astronaut.

 I loved the beautiful illustrations in the book as well as the literary prose of the authors. It is a precious book that will soon become a classic. It is great as a read aloud or as a go along for study of space and the moon.
