Do You Speak English, Moon? A little boy getting ready for bed looks up at the moon and wonders whether it can speak English as it shines all over the world. He tells the moon about his day - it's not lonely falling asleep when you share your day's adventures with the moon.
Do You Speak English, Moon? is a beautifully illustrated story for children aged 3-5 years. A little boy is getting ready for bed and decides to see if the moon can in fact speak English. The little boy asks the moon loads of questions, only children ask. Children are always asking, " how", "what" and "why" and this is evident in the story.
I loved the illustrations, there so bright and detailed, there is so much to see in each picture and will have children pointing out things and asking more questions. My favourite picture is a giant ice cream that is also a slide :)
Overall Do You Speak English, Moon is a great, colourfully illustrated story perfect for bedtime reading with your little ones!
With Do You Speak English, Moon? you get an audio CD of the story, read by Lenny Henry. I have never listened to an audio book before so I am know expert but I loved this audio book. When Lenny Henry is reading the story he really brings it too life. I loved that in between each question, for example "Can you see the sea? Can you see under the sea?" you hear the sound of the sea and it continues for each of the elements of the book and makes the story better.
Do You Speak English, Moon? the book is great but the audio adds an extra element that children will want to hear again and again!
