Moon goes outside to wish upon a star and finds a friendly wolf instead. As a busy girl with school, homework, trumpet lessons, and sports, Moon is feeling overwhelmed with her growing list of things to do. Every day is the same busy day—until she meets wolf. Wolf and the pack teach Moon their “wolfy ways.” It is in the forest that she finds joy in playing, enjoying nature, and learning how to embrace the wild that is within.

Moon is a story with stunning illustrations that introduce the reader to the realm of fantasy. The illustrations are captivating with calming hues and soft edges. This is a great book for preschool- and primary-aged children. The book supports the message that it is okay to embrace the wild that is inside us. The main character development is with Moon, the young girl in the story. She goes from an overwhelmed and over-scheduled girl to someone that discovers how to embrace who she is.
