A stunning picture book that addresses the question: do any of us "own" nature?

When a curious cat asks the question, "Whose moon is that?," a panoply of animals try to stake their claim. The wolf, the owl, and the starry sky all have their reasons, but the moon ultimately answers for herself -- her light is meant to be shared by everyone.

Kim Krans's stunning ink-and-watercolor illustrations beautifully illuminate this simple exploration of our relationship to the world around us and our place in it."

As a parent of three and now the happy Nonna of a soon to be three-year old granddaughter, I can tell you WHY is a big part of our day. In WHOSE MOON IS THAT? Kran tackles the question who owns the moon. Set in the forest, this beautifully illustrated novel shares the enchanting story of animals and the land laying claim to the moon and her brilliant response. Krans message of sharing these wonders and that they belong to all of us offered teachable moments while delighting the Royals. (my grandchildren)

The story is told in simple verse. For example, “Is this a joke?” The mountain spoke. “It’s mine. It’s only fair!” and “Now, I am appalled,” the ocean called. “None if this is true! I reflect its light on my waves all night. It does not belong to you!” I loved the moon’s response and of course once that question is solved the curious cat asked another, “Whose sun is that?” When I asked my granddaughter,  “Whose sun is it?” she yelled,  “Everyones.” Message delivered.

    This does sound like such a cute book, and the voice is the way a child would ask?
