Margot thinks about the moon all the time. She reads, collects facts and talks about outer space all the time to the consternation of others . This makes it difficult for Margot at school, both academically and socially. Things crescendo until one day all of the words that come out of Margot’s mouth are about the moon landings; she can say nothing else. Margot goes home and writes her frustrations out on the wall. The result is that her mother really hears her and responds to her in a creative way.
This is a good book for kids who may feel different. It acknowledges difference and also the importance of being heard. Along the way, there are lots of interesting moon facts.
This title has appealing and inclusive illustrations. They add to the story in a lovely way.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
