Just for Fun Reading Challenge is hosted by Dolly at Dollycas Thoughts.
For this month's Just for Fun, I went back to my all time favorite picture book. This is one of the first books/series that I remember reading. Every flipping through it's pages now makes my heart so light! I so loved the illustrations and stories.
In Happy Birthday, Moon, Bear decides he'd like to get a present for the Moon for its birthday. He gets him a hat! That's about the best summary I could come up with without spoiling it for you.
The thing that is most endearing about this series is Bear's innocence. He's just as innocent & carefree as the readers of the book. Being best friends with the Moon! It made me sad when I was a child because I knew that one day, Bear might find out that he's not friends with the Moon afterall - and I didn't want him to be disappointed! I also remember looking at the back of the books to see which other ones I could find with the same character. I also read Moongame and always wanted to read Mooncake.
I googled this book and found a youtube video of it, so if you have 6 minutes, you can watch the animated version of Happy Birthday Moon!
