It stands tall against a pitch-black sky as we peer into each apartment to gaze at the tenants and their homes. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. But then the rabbits show up and say they don't have a home anymore, so the creature plants a flower that blooms and creates the home that the rabbits needed again. Read the note at the very beginning of the book (which could also start a good discussion with kids before reading) to make sense of the ending.

I can say this as a sweeping remark, in my experience they offer a different perspective anywhere from the sense of humor to subject matter to the illustrations. Instead of directly linking her behavior to understandable reactions of children to newness, the text undermines itself by making Lucy’s parents’ sweet reassurances impotent and using the grandmother’s scientific explanation of moonlight as an unnecessary metaphor. I liked the story well enough, though the author’s note at the beginning feels necessary for the story to make some sense when it kind of derails with some rabbits midway through… that part felt like a non sequitur to me. I had *no* idea what was coming next while I read Moon Pops by this 2020 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award-winning author-illustrator - and I love that about it.The artist uses real figurines and perfect lighting to capture the most pleasant way to portray this story. I would strongly recommend having a good supply of yummy frozen treats to eat after you finish reading the story.

She is an internationally acclaimed Korean children’s book author and illustrator and has won the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award. Similarly, the text moves from a lulling, magical cadence to a distinct shift in mood as the bugs ready themselves for their foray into the night: “They wave their bottoms in the air, wiggle their feelers, take a deep, deep breath, and sing, ‘Here we go, it’s time to glow! The biggest issue I had, and the reason I realized the book was translated, is at the end two rabbits show up and are said to have lived in the moon. is the only resident to have noticed the moon dripping away to nothing, and she races outside to catch the drops to mix up a frozen treat: the titular moon pops, which are icy and sweet, melt away the heat. Annemarie, the art teacher, has enjoyed reading Edgar and Lucy by Victor Lodato, My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout, and Karma: A Yogi’s Guide to Crafting Your Destiny by Sadhguru.It’s a dystopian novel centering Indigenous voices and issues in a world ravaged by ecological, as well as societal crisis. The collage illustrations are stunning and the story is a beautiful look into the tales of Korean culture.

A strange and delightful tale made for lingering over—and perfect for reading with your own moon pop . Baek illustrates the tale with photographs of intricate 3D dioramas that use light and shadow to beguiling effect.

My only quibble, was if the moon melted (and was thus liquid), but all the power went out, how did granny manage to freeze the moon pops? The first six pages pull readers into a lush, beautiful world of nighttime: “When the sun has set, silence falls over the Big Forest, and all of the nighttime animals wake up. An Honor Book in the 2022 Boston Globe-Horn Book Picture Book Awards, Moon Pops is a re-telling of a Korean folktale.

One of the grannies struggling with the heat decides to make ice pops out of the melting moon, but while that does keep everyone cool, it leaves the rabbits from the moon homeless. And so on, until Mom’s enticing promise of treasure in the deep sea persuades her little Treasure Hunter to take a dive. Each of the Lower Elementary classrooms did September projects based on Baek’s magical picture book.I absolutely loved this story and I loved the papery, collage-style illustrations accentuated by the glowing yellow of the melted moon. One sweltering summer night, while the many residents of one apartment building are struggling to fall asleep, the moon begins to melt. The art is a mix of photo backgrounds and cut out drawings of anthropomorphic wolf-like creatures in the foreground. Based on the Korean fable of the moon rabbit, the tale takes place in a multistory apartment building at night.
