Book Review – Sun Kisses, Moon Hugs

Susan Shaefer Bernardo sent us her amazing book, Sun Kisses, Moon Hugs!


If you’ve read this book before, we’d love to hear what you think about it! This is what our class wrote about this book:

This story reminds us of the times when we are far away from the people we care about. When you miss someone and can’t see them, you might wonder what they are doing. If you think about the sun shining, it is probably shining on the person you are missing, too. You can send them a “sun kiss.” If it’s nighttime and you’re seeing the moon, you can think about sending a “moon hug.” We love the idea of knowing the sun, the moon, the stars, and even rain on a cloudy day can remind us of the people we love.

The illustrator of this book is Courtenay Fletcher. We really loved the illustrations! Everyone wanted to hold the book so we could each see a closer view of all the pages. There are beautiful colors that make us feel really happy when we look at this book.

Some of us wanted to share more about what we think about Sun Kisses, Moon Hugs:


RS- [This book is about] loving other people when you really don’t see them – even when you can’t see them and they can’t see you.

NK- Love doesn’t stop when you’re apart.

BC/NS/ZR: We can look at the moon and remember that we all care for each other.

Our class gives this book two big thumbs WAY up! We hope you will want to read it, too!

Thank you very much to Susan Schaefer Bernardo for sending this amazing book to us. We are so grateful!
