I Took the Moon for a Walk (Bilingual Children's Book) - Portuguese/English
Author: Carolyn Curtis
Alison Jay

A young boy goes on a magical adventure with his friend, the Moon. Lyrical verse combines with detailed illustrations, delivering a dramatic backdrop for an imaginative journey. Readers will love the serene beauty of the night time world. At the end of the book, discover facts about the moon as it passes through the sky, and the ways it influences our lives. Readers can also learn about many nocturnal animals who occupy the world at night.


This sweet story, written in rhyme, will appeal immensely to the young child. In the tale, a young boy takes a walk through the countryside with the moon as his only companion. His nocturnal meanderings take him by sleeping “rust-bellied robins,” through dew-drenched fields, to the swings, where he kicks his feet high and imagines “that the moon had just asked [him] to fly.” The little boy then dances across a bridge, where he “echoes in [the] glow” between the moon above and its reflected light from the water below. After accompanying the boy home, the moon thanks him by “sharing its sweet sleepy light.”

Many readers will appreciate the fanciful illustrations of acclaimed illustrator Alison Jay. After painting these whimsical, folk art-inspired images, Ms. Jay applied a crackle varnish to give the work an “antique” look. Little readers will delight in the big fat moon with its little arms and legs and changeable expression.

I particularly enjoyed the last two fact-filled pages of the book. The first page, entitled “The Mysterious Moon,” contains interesting information about the moon, including how different cultures view (and celebrate) the moon, and the different phases of the moon. In the second page, “The World at Night,” the author discusses nocturnal animals, insects, and flowers.

5 of 5 So happy to have found these! April 16, 2020
Reviewer: Barbara H. from Palos Verdes Estates, CA United States  
I bought four of Language Lizard's English/Romanian children's books as a gift for our regular waitress at the restaurant where we go every Friday night. She and her husband emigrated to the US from Romania four years ago, and they're expecting their first baby. I know the books are for "later," but I always give bilingual books to immigrant families as a "welcome to American but don't forget your roots" gift. My own grandparents came here from Italy and promptly told their children, "Not one word of Italian!" How I wish my mom knew Italian and taught some to me! These are high-quality books and I hope they help sustain the cultural bridge the recipients have built.
