Title: Girl Who Spoke to the Moon
Author: Land Wilson
Illustrator: Sue Cornelison
When Sofia becomes friends with the Moon, she begins dreaming of visiting. Then one night, her wish comes true! But what she sees makes her very sad. From out in space, Sofia can see how polluted the Earth is. Can the Moon and Sofia find a way to work together to make Earth feel better?
Like Land’s lyrical prose, Sue uses gentle illustrations to subtly pass along the messages of the story.
In my favourite spread, Sofia questions where the moon has gone.
This gentle, rhyming story of friendship offers a unique approach to change the way we view Earth, seeing it from the Moon’s perspective. At the end of the book is a section called “What the moon shows Sofia” and it explains air, land and water pollution in simple terms as well as what we can do to help the environment.
