HAROLD NEEDED A MOON

A SMALL FOREST WITH ONE TREE IN IT.

When it comes to showing imagination, I don't think you can outdo a small kid drawing whatever world he wants. I don't know how my grandkids will like it, but I loved it. What a great way to start creative thinking. I will probably play this before doing something creative with my grandkids.

I gave the performance five stars, but I agree that the music can be a little much. It is not enough to detract from the story though, but better music or no music could have been used.

Great Little Book

This book even has pictures on the audio book. I think all children's books should have that option. Highly recommend for preschool age.
