Grandma and grandchild are half a world apart, but she reminds him that they still see the same moon.

A sweet/bittersweet tale that will personally touch many of us who live far away from our families.

This lovely book is an ode to cats, those who have kittens, those who are strays who come in from the rain, those who are the boss and let their owner know they are in charge.

Then, there are cats that like to crawl under the covers at night, others who are beatiful with white fur. some ar born in the farmer's barn, and there are cats who love to wait and then surprise the people who care for them.

Anone who loves cats will like this book.

This is a beautifully illustrated book, depicting the emotions of a child and grandmother who live in different parts of the world, and long to be together more often. As always, this author writes with a depth of feeling and emotions that are heartfelt. She begins with the differences in the weather wherein she is experiencing snow, in Africa, her grandson is livling where the sun is hot. She writes of memories of reading books to him, and now he reads books, mainly about the moon.

Where she lives, there is ice skating on the pond of frozen ice. And if he were there with her, she would hold his hand and skate with him. Where he is, there is swimming on a lake and sand castles are made with the hot sand. He has sweet dogs and so does she.

It is obvious she loves her grandson and longs to keep the connection tied tight. This is a beautiful book highly recommended to any grand parent and grand child.

Four Stars
