A Great Mix of Fact & Fiction June 12 2011
By Natasha Deen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Here's something every writer knows: there are no new stories, only fresh takes on old favourites (and most of those favourites come from myths and legends). So, I was curious as both a reader and writer to see what Dot to Dot in the Sky: Stories of the Moon had to tell me.

I was really impressed with this book. I love the breadth of different cultures that were included--from Africa to Russia, Japan to Greece, there's a wealth of myths. The other thing I really enjoyed was the inclusion of facts and history of the moon. They were tucked into side bars--unobtrusive and waiting for reader, shaded a different color to offset it from the page but not screaming for attention. As for the illustrations, they were amazing. Vibrant and eye-catching.

In all, it's a great universal book: older kids and adults will enjoy the stories and the nuances shown in how different cultures interpreted and understood the world around them. The younger children will love practicing their reading skills as well as enjoying having the stories read to them. For those too young to read, parents can use the pictures as a great conversational tool.

In total, this is a fantastic book: interesting, enjoyable, yummy to both the reading & visual senses.
