Item Description...
In a book with foldout pages, Monica's father fulfills her request for the moon by taking it down after it is small enough to carry, but it continues to change in size

Publishers Description
Monica wants the moon to play with, so her Papa sets out to get it. It isn't easy to climb to the moon, but he finally succeeds -- only to find the moon is too big to carry home. Children will love the joyful way in which this problem is solved.
Now available as a Classic Board Book edition, this delightful story literally unfolds as pages open dramatically, extending both outward and upward.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Love this book!  Apr 28, 2008
I originally picked up this book because my daughter, 2, calls her dad "papa" rather than "daddy" and I thought it would be fun even though it seemed a little ahead of her. Let me tell you, she can't get enough of this book! She LOVES it and she gets the story. She's just 2 as in 24 months old, and she sees the moon outside now and asks her papa for it. I love it and highly recommend this book to anyone!
Teeny tiny book, cute message  Apr 11, 2008
This book is really small!
Cute, but if you are getting it for a toddler they may need some supervision to make sure the pages don't get torn.
Also a bit expensive for what you are getting..
Another excellent book by Eric Carle  Feb 3, 2008
This book is among my daughter's favorites. She is nearly two years old and has already dog-eared and torn some pages, she literally has enjoyed the book to pieces. This has turned out to be a perfect book for her because she absolutely loves the moon. Seattle winter's don't offer many opportunities for even glimpses of the moon. It's also about a girl and her papa which is something nice for my husband to share with her. Don't expect this book to physically withstand the curious hands of infants. It's not tough like a board book!
cute book  Jan 21, 2008
this book is very small - about 5" x 7". the pages unfold in creative ways and the story is cute. beautiful illustrations.
great preschooler story but not made for toddlers  Jan 15, 2008
My 4 year old daughter has requested this book for her bed time story for about 2 months straight. It is a wonderful Eric Carle book - in terms of artwork and story, and as a bonus it touches on the reality of the phases of the moon, and the great lengths a father will go to please his daughter. Plus it has some cool fold-out elements of the pages. What more could you want? Well, you might want a book that is a little bigger (it's 4x5 inches) and a little more sturdy (the pages are made out of oak-tag thickness). This book definitely will not hold its own against a toddler. I recommend waiting until your child is 4 or 5, when he/she will not tear the book apart in a minute, and when they are old enough to discuss some of the elements of the story.
