Recommended for Ages 3 - 7 years

Living far from relatives is hard, and missing them never gets easier. This story helps make the sadness just a little bit lighter when Max’s grandfather leaves him with a wonderful idea we can all use. ‘Max and the Tag Along Moon’ by Floyd Cooper is a heartfelt story about a little boy who is so sad to have to leave his grandfather’s house. When it comes time to leave his grandfather reminds him that when he looks up at the moon, he should know that Grandpa is looking up at the same moon. Max spends his whole drive home watching the moon and making sure that it never goes away. Sure enough, that moon follows him all the way home and with it comes the love from a far away Grandpa. This book has become our companion when we first get home from visiting family out of town. We pull it off the shelf, read it together and go right to the window to find our moon. My daughter always settles into bed happier knowing that her moon is being looked at by her own far away family too.
