From the Author
Did you know that everyone has a purpose in life? Did you ever envy what other people have...especially your sibling's possessions?
A story of Moon Girl
who made sure the moon shone brightly each night so night creatures could creep outside and see where they were going. There was another girl, her sister, Sun Girl. She made sure the sun shone brightly so all day creatures could stay away. So why did Moon Girl leave one day? What was she looking for? What did she discover? This is a story of self worth and valuable relationships. Discover the colorful journey with original illustrations.
A story inspired by the author's observation of her mother and aunt's relationship. The name of her book is a direct translation from "Wul Nyu" which is Korean for "Moon Girl". Moon Girl
has the author's original colorful illustrations and chose the picture of Moon Girl journeying in her "moonmobile". Unlike her first book, "An Eagle Named Canary" which has felt pen drawings, the author's challenge was making a decision on using watercolor pencils as her media.
The book contains powerful messages of self worth and systematic relationships. This book is suitable for early learners and can be a learning tool for classroom discussions on social relationships and self image.
