In The Moonlight Meeting, Tobin, a sweet pangolin, Bismark, a loud-mouthed sugar glider, and Dawn, a serious fox, introduce their nighttime world to early readers. The story emphasizes friendship, sharing, and humor. Includes bonus animal glossary.
I thought this was a really cute book. My kids all read it right after we got it in the mail. It was easy enough for my 6-year-olds to read, but still entertaining for my 9-year-old (who loves all things Nocturnal.) This is definitely a book that will be read over and over again.
Here are reviews from two of my boys (I couldn't get one from the other 6-year-old.)
Micah - I liked how Bismarck acted. He acted funny. I like how Dawn came through the bushes. I also like how Tobin pooped out stinky stuff. Braden - I like how the book was just like the first book in the beginning. I like how Bismark acted like he owns the woods. My favorite character is Dawn because she is so smart and can figure out problems faster then the others. Tobin is very protective about others and he cares about others.
How fun is this book?! Not only was I really excited when I got it, but my 6 year old was thrilled. She is just starting to read "chapter" books, and she thought she was the coolest thing ever to read this book just like her older siblings. They previously read the older version of the Nocturnals, and she knew all about it. In fact, it's a good thing I quickly read it before I handed it to her because I haven't seen it since. She plays games pretending to be the fox and my other kids think it's funny to talk in an accent like Bismark.
Do you have an early reader? Check this book out for them. It's super cute.
