  1. Fantastic List! Might I suggest adding How The Moon Regained Its Shape by Janet Heller. This book links the moon to Native American Folklore and also is a great resource for educators on the subject of bullying. I reviewed it on my blog on March 3, 2013.

  2. Thanks for the great list. I LOVE Moon over Manifest–what an amazing book, and Owl Moon is one of my all-time favorites!

    Moonshot, a nonfiction picture book by Brian Floca is excellent.

    Maggot Moon by Sally Gardner is for older readers and is quite dark and intense, but is fast-paced and well told.

  3. Love this list Mia! I especially appreciate that you include some diverse choices. Here’s one of our faves: Thanking the Moon by Grace Lin

    1. Thanks Mary! I thought I had tracked down all the Grace Lin books but Thanking the Moon is new to me! Will have to find it! I’ll add to the list. I am really enjoying your 30 days of picture books!

  4. I love the idea of multicultural themed books for kids. Even though my son is only 19 months, we still do read to him and he loves it! Thank you so much for sharing this with us at Countdown in Style. Don’t forget to come back on Friday to see if you are featured. 🙂

  5. I’ve never heard of most of these books. I’ll have to check them out for my kids!

    Thanks for sharing and linking up with Countdown in Style! Don’t forget to come back on Friday to see if you were featured!
