The Biscuit Moon (Bilingual Children's Book) - Turkish/English
Author: Jesus Zaton
Illustrator: Jesus Gaban
The sun beats down relentlessly on a scorched landscape where nothing is growing. Buffalo is listless and desperately looking around for something to eat. Then, one evening, he finds a white biscuit in a small pool of water. But, he is not the only animal to see it and a great fight begins. However, not all is what it seems...
The Biscuit Moon is a tale about Buffalo, Lion, and the delicious biscuit that never was. This is a powerful and discussion-provoking story about scarcity, greed, the futility of fighting, and the wisdom of a humble animal that leads to cooperation and migration. The story can also be a metaphor for communities making a new life far away from home.
With evocative images by an award-winning illustrator, teachers can use this engaging story to explore ideas of climate change, the impact of drought on wildlife, and sharing of precious resources. Extensive teacher's notes, along with links to child-friendly resources about climate change, are available as an excellent resource for schools and home school lessons.
