Papa Please Get the Moon for Me The World of Eric Carle This story literally unfolds as pages open dramatically extending both outward and upward Monica wants the moon to play with so her Papa sets out to get it for her It isn t easy to climb all the way
Beautiful tale of a father who will do anything for his daughter.
What kind of message was Eric Carle sending here The Papa in this story is a hopeless push over the way that little girl bosses him around Going for whimsy and fantasy is one thing but this little brat has done nothing to earn the heroic feat that her father performs And then she acts all surprised when the waning moon disappears She looked old enough to have put together the pieces of lunar dynamics on her own.I will say this though the way the pages fold out is extra creative For that
Absolutely loved I mean it was great and gave me the feel of wanting to read it every night before I went to bed Eric Carle is a genius in his own right The artwork and the storyline proved to be truly captivating.
Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me is about a young girl named Monica who loves the moon She tries to reach the moon but she can quite make it, and so she asks her father to get the moon for her The reading level of this book is kindergarten through 2nd grade Comments observations This book, like many of Carle s other ingenious books, has an interactive element and the pages literally fold out and pop up as the reader goes through the story This book is heartwarming as it shows a fathers love in u [...]
Sure, it sets impossible standards for myself as a father whose limits are planted firmly within reality And sure, it plays fast and loose with the laws of physics But my two year old loves it, from the angular paintings to the fold out pages, from the daddy and daughter to the moon and stars And isn t that all that really matters
Love the illustrations and the story
Pretty cool book I read it to some preschoolers and their parents They seemed to like it.
First, my Kindergarten students all enjoyed how each page folded a different way Secondly, I loved how papa was willing to climb all the way to the moon for his daughter.
Fun fold outs augment the simple story Also some nice simple astronomy.

I remember reading this book as a child on VHS, on the Very Hungry Caterpillar Other Stories tape that my mom got me as a kid which also included the Very Quiet Cricket This was my first time experiencing the book in book form as opposed to animated film form It was an interesting experience.The little girl in the narrative asks her father to get the moon for her, since she is too short and can t reach it, but she wants to play with it Her father fetches a very long ladder, climbs a very high mo [...]
Papa, please get the moon for me is about a little girl who wants to play with the moon Her father tries to climb up to it and bring it down, but it is too large The moon tells him that he gets smaller each night, so they waited until he was small enough to bring home and play with The little girl played with the moon until it dissappeared It then reappeared in the sky the next night This is a really cute toy picture book that allows the reader to dream big The illustrations were made by paintin [...]
I got this for my hubby for Father s Day Since my daughter was born, I get him a daddy book every year for Father s Day and sign it with my daughter s name and now the 2nd one we re expecting I was especially excited about this one because it s a daddy and daughter book, and it s Eric Carle I love his books and illustrations.This is a sweet book showing the lengths that a dad will go to for his daughter It also shows the stages of the moon This book has pages that pull out to get big and then on [...]
Okay, I first need to say that the standard placed on parents from this book is impossible.Now, the way I see this book is that it has two lessons to share First lesson is to the parents to not get pushed over and bullied by their children no matter how much they want to give them the moon, the world, everything The second lesson is to the children No matter how much you want something, be happy with what your parents do for you to have what you do have.
What a clever little book Eric Carle author of The Very Hungry Caterillar put together another wonderful book to not only delight my son but I as well I love his timeless artwork The blue green skies are magical He too put a lot of imagination not only in the story but how the pages unfolded before your eyes This is a very fun read and just the purfect size for my little guy.
Cute story portraying the love a father has for his child, and the great lengths no matter how it seems impossible he d go to get whatever it is she needs The illustrations are quite lovely as well Nice work, Eric Carle.
I think, although unrealistic it shows how much curiosity children have for the stars in the sky, and how they don t really understand how small they are This is a book that can be used as a gateway to explain simple astronomy concepts.
As a lover of books written by Eric Carle, this work shows a love between a father and his daughter I appreciated the how giving the moon was to the father to share a bit of himself to the child to enjoy the moon for what it is Another touching book written and illustrated by a great author.
The resolution of the story is clever and the foldout pages are really well designed Carle s art on top of that is a nice bonus.
Another beautiful masterpiece Adding another one to the pile of happy storytime memories with my girl.
One of my grandson s favorites Very cute.
Sweet story, with soothing illustrations Great bedtime book.
One of John s favorites that he liked to read to the girls.
great book, imaginative and happy feel
Super Sweet Story
Sweet story about a father who loves his little girl so much that he gets the moon for her While I don t care for the illustrations not an Eric Carle fan , the fold out pages are pretty impressive That being said, those pages do make it pretty hard to use this book at storytime, and advance practice will be required In my opinion, the ending was anticlimactic and just sortaopped Overall, the book was okay, but not as good as I d hoped.
I like it when picture books reach outside of the book itself, either with pop ups and or page extensions Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me has great art by Eric Carle and showcases the different stages of the lunar phases It also reaffirms a father s willingness to go above and beyond for his children.
This story contains simple, colorful illustrations that depict nature It also contains a fiction story that relates to scientific topics such as the solar system and distance This book also has personification and teachers could use it to ask children a variety of open ended questions where they could use their imaginations.
