It is time for the great feast. Mother, the Star of the North Sky, is lighting the way for her children, Sun, Moon and Wind. All that she asks is that they bring her something back from the feast. At the feast, Sun shone very bright, Moon glided on the Wind's cool breeze. They met other stars and danced with the rains. But it was Moon who remembered to bring Mother something from the feast. His reward was that he would be blessed. Moon will always be cool and light and calm the night sky. Sun, will be the brightest but people will cover their heads because he is bright and hot. Wind, will be strong but whip the rains, all creatures will hide from him.
This delightful Indian Folktale will teach a whimsical story about why the moon shines so bright in the night. Young readers will appreciate the heat of the sun, and the treachery of the wind. This is a wonderful story parents will love to read to their children before bedtime. This book is also a great tool for teachers to introduce folk tales in the classroom and have children make up their own stories about the sun, moon and wind.
