Papa, please get the moon for me is a precious story that displays the love that a father has for his daughter. Monica feels so close to the moon that she tries to grab it and play with it, yet she is not close enough. Therefore, she asks her dad to retrieve the moon for her so she can play with it. Her father is able to find an extra long ladder and climbs up to the moon. When he reaches the moon and it becomes small enough to carry he takes it back to his daughter. This is a great bed time read for a father and young child, it is easily understood and the illustrations are very original. The illustrations are so great and original because of the action and detail portrayed in the pictures. Also there is an interactive part of the book where the pages extend, wich is always fun for readers. Pick up this book for a short, heartfilled read and you will not be disappointed!
