About the book

Through this illustrated tale about the moon stealing the sun's glory, children learn about the importance of humility and the dangers of pride.

This rhyming, rollicking tale tells of a crime of cosmic proportions: the moon, blinded by pride, fails to see the true source of his abilities-the light provided by the sun. He boasts of his ability to shine, to change shape throughout each month, and to swell the tides. One day, overwhelmed by a piercing ray of sunshine, the moon repents of his pride and changes his ways, and from that point on he is happy to reflect the sun's light.

This beautifully illustrated book introduces the concept of humility to children. Readers will be reminded that everything we have, including our gifts and talents, is from God. Just as the moon learns to boast only of the sun, children-and their parents-learn that to boast of anything other than the Son is utter foolishness.

My Thoughts

This cute little story will teach your kids about the importance to recognize that everything we have is a gift from God himself.  He has equipped us with talents in order for us to be able to advance His Kingdom.   As we often say in our church “It’s not about us, it’s all about Him!”.

The text is easy to read even for a child who is just getting comfortable in reading.   It can be read by the child itself or by the parent.   It’s an excellent book to encourage snuggle time on the couch with your kids!  The illustrations are bright and goes well with the text.   The book is all about how we can get blinded about pride and that in the end it is better to be humble and give the glory back to God in our life.


At the end of the book, you will learn some fun fact about space and its exploration.   You will also get a reading comprehension section where you can ask specific questions to your child in order to determine if she/he has understood what the book was about.

It’s a cute book to give as a gift for a baby shower, a child dedication or baptism or for a first birthday.
