5.0 / 7.0

The rhyming text itself is a sweet story, but if you heard it without the illustrations you might think it’s more moralizing—however, the gorgeous, charming illustrations toned that down for me and made this a beautiful read about caring for Earth. I loved the friendship of the girl and the moon, and the illustration of the Earth the girl views from the moon is breathtaking and touching.

Who Wrote The Girl Who Spoke to the Moon: A Story about Friendship and Loving Our Earth

author
Land Wilson

Land Wilson developed an appreciation for nature as a boy thanks to his parents and naturalist Elizabeth Terwilliger. Having read that viewing Earth from space had a profound effect on a person’s sense of responsibility to the health of our planet, Land wanted to share what he learned about the importance of protecting nature. After interviewing three Apollo astronauts, Colonel Frank Borman, Captain Eugene Cernan, and Captain Wally Schirra, Jr., he resolved to share this experience with children. It was then that Sofia’s Dream was born.
