The gift of childhood is the gift of experiencing new adventures for the first time. The wonderment, the innocence and the delight of discovery are captured in Gwen Tanner's story of Kiral and his search for the moon. The vibrant illustrations and delightful story add to the magic of Kiral's journey where we are not only introduced to his animal friends, but join in on his search for the moon and what happens when this little boy finds it. After reading this book your child will have the Gift Of The Moon and you will have the twinkle of delight in their eyes.

By Flora

The author has written a delightful adventure for young children to read. While trying to find the moon to protect his mom is the surface story, the young reader also learns it's good to think about what's happening,learn from experience & adapt behavior as a result of experience. Fun illustrations too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs revision to be great June 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I wish I could give a higher rating, I really do.

Reasons for not:
1.His mother screams in the night - screams - because the moon has come out, but we never find out why. What was it that
warranted a scream? Perhaps the word scream was too strong and should have been something like exclaimed. But even then, we still want to know the reason for it...
2. The story ended abruptly. It's not because it has a surprise ending that it feels unfinished. Surprises can be good. It's because the surprise is a new shift of focus that appears out of nowhere. To me, it wasn't a satisfying ending.
3. The story, for all its fearfulness, is just a little bit boring. Overall it feels flat -- no emotion evoked.

I thought the idea for the story was great and even the plot was good. Just could use some tweaking in giving it some life.

I thought this was a good first effort. With a few revisions, it could be wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sweet, delightful read April 23, 2013
By Chellie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Gift of the Moon" is an absolutely delightful book. I smiled all the way through it. Children will love the illustrations of the animals and will wonder what happens next with Kiral as he journeys through his African village in search of the moon - and, unbeknownst to him, so much more. Gwen Tanner is a great writer and storyteller; hopefully there are more works on the horizon from this author.
