Man in the Moon

Last weekend we had a chance to see the Super Moon light up the sky so I went to the library in search of a moon-themed book to read with my youngest son.  I found Catching the Moon by Myla Goldberg which is a story about a moon who comes down from the sky to visit a lady he sees fishing each and every night.  The moon learns that the lady is not fishing for fish, but for him!  The story is beautifully written and illustrated!!

My son seems fascinated with the “man in the moon” and loves looking for a face now whenever we see the moon up in the sky so I decided a moon-themed lunch would be fun for him.  Today’s lunch includes:  turkey/cheese sandwich with white American cheese accents, grapes, celery and peanut butter, dark chocolate and Quest bar slices, two pumpkin chocolate chip mini muffins

Below are some other twaddle-free “moon” themed books we’ve enjoyed reading to our boys over the years.  For those of you unfamiliar with the word twaddle it means dumbed down literature; absence of meaning.  Most often when I’m on the hunt for books for my kids I’m searching for age appropriate twaddle-free books.

1) Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me by Eric Carle  2) I Took the Moon for a Walk by Carolyn Curtis  3) Happy Birthday, Moon by Frank Asch 4) The Moon Book by Gail Gibbons  5) Kitten’s First Full  Moon by Kevin Henkes  6) Owl Moon by Jane Yolen

    I just purchased the Quest bars, and I really like the flavor! But I’m a bit concerned about the sucralose included in the formulation. There is information floating around the web that links sucralose to liver issues, which gives me the Heebie-jeebies. What are your thoughts on this?

      Heather- I’m so glad you wrote!! You made me realize I linked the wrong Quest bars in this post!! There are different kinds of Quest bars. Some are labeled 100% natural which are sweetened with stevia…not sucralose. The bars NOT labeled 100% natural are sweetened with sucralose so you have to watch the labels carefully!! My boys absolutely love the Cinnamon Roll flavor! Thanks for the heads up…I’ll change the link right away!

    I think this is the first time I am commenting but I have actually been a follower for a while. I was just coming to get the ingredients for the mini muffins but the link says “Page not found” ?
