This was my daughter’s favorite story when she was a child. This was my son’s favorite story when he was a child. This story beautifully tells the answer, (in a fantastic way), to the question: How did the moon get into the sky? The illustrations and words exquisitely tell and show young students what a myth is. My Guided Reading Packet focuses on questions that encourage students to make inferences. This book is a treasure and fosters critical thinking, even in the youngest of children!
For a post-reading activity, students can read other myths with partners. They can also ask their own questions and write their own myths to answer those questions.
