The Moon Might Be Milk by Lisa Shulman.
Rosie wants to know what the moon is made of, so she asks Cat who says that the moon is made of milk. Rosie agrees that that might be so, but decides to ask another animal. It isn’t until she asks her Gran what the moon is made of that she gets an answer that satisfies her.
And so a story is created that has the rhythm and repetition of a classic story and is infused with warmth and wonder as well. The book does have more words than some picture books, but because of the repetition, they are made more friendly and accessible. The illustrations are friendly and warm, perfectly rounding out the world that the words create.
This is a good read-aloud for kindergarteners or first graders who can use it to ask themselves the question of what the moon is made of. I would recommend it for evening or pajama storytimes as well as any storytime where you are reading It Looked Like Spilt Milk. Somehow they just seem like a natural pair.
