Fool Moon Rising

Looking for a simple and beautifully illustrated book to teach children the concept of humility?

Look no further than Fool Moon Rising by Kristi and T. Lively Fluharty.

From the glowing punch of color on each glossy page to the whimsical rhyme of the story itself, this book captures a child's attention from the first to the last page.

The moon is quite foolish. It seems he has become a bit prideful. He boasts of his light, his power to control his shape and even his influence on the tides. He feels very big and important until a ray from the sun zaps him just a little, reminding him that it isn't he who should get the glory but the sun whom he reflects.

Fool Moon Rising is a lovely story with a gentle but significant depth.  Parents and children will be stirred to reexamine who they reflect and why.

The last two pages feature some discussion questions and fun facts about outer space.

Fool Moon Rising is a delight. The artwork is truly stunning. I think this illustrator (Tom Lively) is a blessing to believers as he uses his obvious talent for God's glory.
