Book Review | I Took the Moon for a Walk

Title: I Took the Moon for a Walk

Author: Carolyn Curtis

My Review:

“I Took the Moon for a Walk” by Carolyn Curtis is the second featured review in the Barefoot Books series. This large format board book delivers a lovely poetic story and gives youngsters a peek inside the nightlife of the moon, plants and animals. I initially thought that this book might be too young for my children but I was very wrong. They really enjoyed “I Took the Moon for a Walk” and we even talked about my daughter’s fear of the dark. She expressed that she thought the young boy in the book was very brave and decided that “maybe it’s not all that scary at night.” There is even an interesting information section at the end of the book that talks about “The Mysterious Moon” and “The World at Night.” After reading the book one evening, my children and I walked outside together to see the “half moon” which they were able to identify from the book. The illustrations by Alison Jay have a folksy appeal that captivated my children. This is a wonderful bedtime story and I highly recommend it for children of all ages (1-7).

Large Format Board Book: $14.99

Barefoot Books was started in 1992 by two moms, Nancy and Tessa who sought to work from home and who wanted “beautiful books that would capture the imagination, spark curiosity, inspire creativity and instill a respect for the diversity of the planet and for the earth itself.” In my opinion the creators of Barefoot Books have succeeded brilliantly. I have read many Barefoot Books with my children over the years and each story has always exceeded my expectations. Since working at home was so important to the creators, as the business evolved they created the Barefoot Books Ambassador Program. If you are looking for a great way to earn extra money while having the luxury of working from home, “barefoot” if you choose then I encourage you to learn more about the perks of becoming a Barefoot Books Ambassador.
