This beautifully illustrated story reads like a fable. In it, the reader observes as various animals make their cases for why the sun or the moon is better and more needed. The animals think of a number of ways to resolve their dilemma of which should be in charge and finally find a solution. Of course, the critters decide that both the moon and sun are important and needed. Along the way, young readers find out more about all of the things that the sun and moon provide for us. The book concludes with an extended additional section on the science of the sun, moon, seasons and more.
In addition to telling a tale about the sun and moon, the story is also a metaphor for problem solving and co-operation among people. This can open up a good discussion for children and their adults about compromise and working together.
