Sun and Moon Sisters By Khoa Le Review

This October, Insight Editions is publishing Sun and Moon Sisters, an exciting new addition to the growing Insight Kids program.

Through the fable-like story of the humanized Sun and Moon, parents can begin to talk to their children about the environment, while also teaching a valuable life lesson about balance and harmony.

The Sun and the Moon are sisters, and they rule and sky together peacefully. One day, however, each begins to wonder: who is more important? This friction leads them to make a powerful decision to switch roles, hoping that it will lead to a greater understanding of their powers. Soon, the Sun begins shining all through the night, and the Moon brings night to the day. In the end, the two sisters will learn an important lesson about the importance of harmony and the balance of their relationship.

Featuring stunning lenticular covers and colorful illustrations throughout, this book is perfect for children ages 4 and up.

In Spring 2016, Insight Kids published The Cloud Princess and The Boy with the Big Hair, also written and illustrated by Khoa Le.

I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  Right after reading this book to my family, one of the kids asked, why the sisters did not just change powers or use theirs at the right time of the day and night, and I really could not explain that. However it is a great story and I had a lot of fun reading it outloud.
