Review

Young Harriet feels peaceful and happy playing her cello alone, but the thought of performing for an audience fills her with dread. When her practice is interrupted by a noisy owl, Harriet hurls her teacup out the window in frustration, accidentally knocking the moon out of the sky. While on earth, Mister Moon befriends Harriet and asks her to play music for him, as this is a privilege he is not accustomed to in the quiet sky. Caldecott Medal winning duo Philip and Erin Stead’s Music for Mister Moon is not particularly striking visually, but its themes will resonate with children intimidated by performance and perhaps even prompt them to begin sharing their talents with others. Recommended Jacy Stahlhut, Centennial Library Intern, Cedarville University
