I bought this for my grand-daughter who loves the Moonbear series.

Moonbear tries to rid himself of his shadow in all sorts of ways and as the story continues, there is a point to show how the sun's position is changing in the sky.

This book is a great resource for teaching your Science standard of shadows.

Format: Paperback
This is a very nice book in which Moonbear explores how light and objects make shadows. [Thus story and science combined - wahoo!]

In this book, Moonbear is going fishing and finds himself vexed and perplexed by his shadow. At first it just gets in the way by scaring the fish; but at the end of the day his shadow ends up 'catching a fish' (shadow fish) just like he does.

In between, Moonbear tries various experiments and learns a great deal about light and shadows. You can't for example nail a shadow to the ground, nor bury it, nor can you get away from them by climbing a large rock if the sun is behind you. You can go inside your house, but chances are that when you come out again, that you will find your shadow, or vice-versa.

There is a nice sequence of pictures that depicts how the movement of the sun makes the shadows of stationary objects move.

Four Stars. Good story. Good read-aloud which is no doubt why Frank Asch has been on the my daughters entering -kindergarten and -first grade reading lists. With older children you can talk about shadows and the nature of visual optics (light).

Amazon has this book listed as good for babies to preschoolers; but I think older children would enjoy it too. [My daughter and son are 6 and 4 years of age respectively; and they enjoyed it.]

Once again we are pleased with another Frank Asch book. The Moonbear Series is one of our favorite series for it's simplicity yet thought provoking stories. Moonbear tries to rid himself of his shadow in all sorts of ways and as the story continues, there is a point to show how the sun's position is changing in the sky. As a toddler, they will enjoy the story, as children grow, they can understand more and more about the nature of shadows.

I love this story about moonbear and his shadow. It is a great story for kindergartners. I am reading this during our night/day unit. We will make our own shadows to hang on the wall (trace friends' outlines). Fun!

Another clever book written by Frank Asch. My 6 y/o really enjoyed this book and requested more Moonbear books. This book is cute, funny, and very engaging. It's got just the right amount of words per page which doesn't bore a child. Recommend!!

My grandson has always been interested in "shadows" and he wondered if there were a book about them. Lo and behold there's Moonbear with a whole simplified story about them. Grandson loved it!
