The Moon With the Crooked Smile written by Bobo Nikce is a book that can be enjoyed by children who love looking at the sky, especially in the evening. Young ones are often quite amazed at the heavenly bodies, particularly about the moon and the stars that light up at night. What are these lights that they see? How do they picture them to be?
This book tells a story of how a child could see the moon in his mind. Children’s imagination can easily be sparked by the illustrations of this book, even matching the way they could see the moon. Is the moon smiling a little? Is it smiling in a somewhat crooked way?
For children, the moon, the stars and the sun could be like real playmates they can relate to. They sleep, they hide, they can even smile! These are just some of the things that can start a conversation not only between friends but between parents and their children.
Light, playful and colorful, this book would be a good bedtime story for children. Before they sleep, they can look out of the window and actually see the moon. They can then visualize the story where the moon looks at them also and wishes them well. This could very well start their love for nature as well as imbibe in them an appreciation of the mystery of the universe surrounding them.
