Children's Book Review: Baby Julia Feeds the Moon by Jason Sandberg

Baby Julia Feeds the Moon by Jason Sandberg 

In a small house, on a small hill, there lives a small baby with a big heart. Her name is Julia and when she discovers that the moon is hungry she's determined to help! This lovingly crafted bedtime story is filled with twinkling stars and pixie wings. Baby Julia Feeds the Moon will bring your child smiles and sweet dreams!

My Thoughts: This was such a cute and delightful book! This book was mostly geared to very young audiences but even adults could find how adorable this story was.

Baby Julia was full of surprises. One would think that she was a normal baby until her pixie wings emerged. She then flew up to the sky to help feed the moon who was crying from hunger. The thought of a baby being able to worry, care, and help out the moon was astonishing.

Though everything was told in a very simplistic manner, one could still get a lot from the story with what was there. The few sentences that were written were enough to convey the feelings and the happening of the story. The wonderful illustrations by the author himself also helped bring the story to life. This was a very well done book.

I was able to share this charming book with some of my students. The youngest students that I have are in second grade. Though the book was a little too easy for them to read, they absolutely adored it! They thought Baby Julia was cute and they really enjoyed how she helped the moon. It was very fun to see their expressions as they read the book because the would chuckle and have huge grins on their faces.

As a whole, Baby Julia Feeds the Moon was a fabulous book. It was adorable and very enjoyable. It definitely brought a smile to my face. I rate it:
