Book Review | The Moon Speaks by Jason G. Duesing

Release Date: May 25, 2021

Synopsis:

Children love playing in the dirt, studying the flowers, and marveling at the clouds. The Moon Speaks, a poetic board book for children, ages 0-4, shows that behind the creation kids love so much stands the God who loves them even more! God speaks to us through the mountains, revealing His strength. He speaks to us through the sun, telling of His glory. In fact, everywhere we look in creation, God speaks!


A perfect bedtime book, the steady, soothing sounds of the text and gentle, realistic artwork provide a calming, worshipful experience for children right before they fall asleep. But The Moon Speaks is also a book for anytime, helping young readers understand that all of creation is telling us something: God is there, He made the world around us, and He wants us to know Him!

Review:

This is a creative Christian perspective on our world. The nature and beauty that God gifted us. This is a simple, short book that children will love, with beautiful pictures of nature.

Each time you read it you could use it to help learn or reinforce other learning and skills. This is especially great for those of you who are looking for Christian based study resources.

This would be great for a study on different landforms, animals, season, rhyming words and poetry. You could have children look at each page and name the different part (rhyming words, what season it looks like, name the animals, etc.). I love to use books like this to cover wide range of topics with children.

You could always discuss color as well, for younger children by asking they what color is the sky, tree, bear, etc. or use it for simple counting. Count the animals. Get them site reading with the repetitive words. Have them count the how many times they see the word “moon”, “cloud”, etc on the page. Do a bar graph and have them color it in each time they see the main word on the page and then compare.

Use these ideas to create your own unit study or pair with worksheets and other resources. Alternatively, this could just me a fun way to teach children without them thinking of it as learning.

This was given to me for review purposes, which are always my own honest opinions, via NetGalley.
