Everyone knows the sun. Not everyone knows the moon. The moon cannot shine like sun and this makes the moon sad. Each day, the sun gives light to the people on earth. The moon wishes he could do the same. In Why the Moon Shines, storyteller Jade Carr tells a tale of how the sun helps the moon get his moonlight.

This illustrated picture book aims to provide little children a simple, yet factually sound explanation as to why the moon shines. The illustrations are elegantly done, complimenting the words of the author and facilitating the flow of the story.

Embedded in this mythical story are a handful of important lessons that children need to learn from the onset, values and virtues that will help them become decent and contributing members of the human community. Why the Moon Shines makes an ideal bedtime storybook for those wonderful moonlit nights.

This book will be featured at the 2013 Bologna Book Exhibit in Bologna, Italy, on March 25 – 28, 2013.
