Henry’s Moon

by Geoffrey Moss

readability grade 2, read aloud kindergarten

Henry lives in a big city, and he hardly ever gets to see the moon; the smog, big people and crowds prevent it almost every night. So, from what he’s heard about the moon and seen he builds a moon for his bedroom window. Every night, Henry turns on his moon so that it’s light can shine on him while he sleeps. When Henry’s friends in the country hear about this contraption, they invite him to visit and see a real moon.A cute story that teaches that we all have our own preferences and everyone’s different.

Make a moon for your own window.

  1. Cut a circular frame out of black construction paper. Punch a hole through the top.
  2. Cut out a circle from a piece of yellow crepe/tissue paper just bigger than the inside circle of the frame.
  3. Paste the circle on the frame.
  4. Tie a string through the hole, making a loop.
  5. Hang in your window.
