The Moon is Broken! by Monique Martin

The Moon is Broken! - Monique B. Martin

I'm really confused by this book... I'm not sure what it's meant to be telling me. feels like there are too many messages trying to be squeezed into one small children's picture book.

are we being told that:
- the moon changes shape?
- you are perfect just the way you are?
- god made everything? & it's all perfect?
- sometimes things are too big for just you to fix, & you need to ask for help?

I'm all lost and confused by it all, so I'm not even going to bother trying to share it with my son.
it's all just way too much for one little book...

on the upside, the illustrations were kind of cute, and full of nice bright colours.
