How the Moon Regained Her Shape

By Janet Ruth Heller

Illustrated by Ben Hodson

This book is about the moon. It is about the Sun being mean to the Moon. He says very mean things and hurts her feeling. She gets littler every time he says something mean. That is why every night there is a different moon shape.  This is how people feel when others say mean things – they feel little.

The Moon comes to Earth and nice people help her see how important she is. She gets back to her right size and goes back to the sky. This is how people feel when others are nice to them.

This book is about bullying but also about being the nice person. I think the colors and characters are very important in this story and have lots of meanings of their own.

I would recommend this book to kids and teachers. Bullying happens in schools and this book would help kids feel better and know how to deal with it.
