Grandmother Moon and Other Mother Stories, Book 1


Traditional and original folktales that explore the love, joy and challenges between mothers and children. "Epaminondas" is a traditional folktale told to Becky Parker Geist by her mother, a rich tale about a boy who tries ever so hard to please his mother, but can't seem to get her instructions quite right, with comical results. "Grandmother Moon and the Homeless Child" is a touching story about searching for home. A little blue bird and a rock child play major roles in "Abuela and the Rock People". And Louisa-May's little sister Angel causes mischief in "Mama, Angel, and the Tree Dragon". In "Strawberry Moon and her Mother", Mother Moon helps her daughter express herself colorfully.
