The Moon In The Sky: Poems Your Kids Would Have Written (If Only They Could Write)

By Bruce Shutts

Illustrated by Amy Wummer

Poetry Picture Book

34 Pages

Ages 4+ ‎

Stinson Books

Hardcover ~ Paperback

Children have the power to turn simple everyday tasks into moments of intrigue and laughter.

When getting dressed, they might just think:

“My pants are really easy

Since both my feet will fit.

And after I put both legs in,

I pull them up. That’s it!

But shirts are very tricky;

They have three holes, not two!

And if you pick the wrong one,

Your head just won’t go through!”

Delight in thirteen whimsical poems that capture the simple honesty of everyday childhood activities written from the perspective of three-to-six-year-olds. From getting dressed, eating snacks, or having stinky feet, you and your child will recognize yourself in these poems. Crafted to make you laugh, smile, and build memories with your kids.

My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

What a delightful book. There are poems describing all aspects of a child’s life, from riding in the car seat to picking their nose. Each poem is fun to read and they are all so very relatable. The flow of each poem is a fun paced way to explain the story. I found this book of poems immensely adorable. The illustrations paired with each poem brought them to life. A truly wonderful experience for all ages.

The Duo Behind The Magic

Bruce Shutts has spent countless hours reading children’s picture books to his three children and five grandchildren over the past forty years. He also loves to create humorous poems for nearly every occasion he can imagine. Coupled with the fact that he often thinks and acts like a three-to-six-year-old, it makes his entrance into the world of children’s books a natural fit. He currently is retired with his wife of forty-five years and loves to travel, play golf, and (you guessed it) read books at night to his grandkids!

Amy Wummer has been working in the field of illustration since the early nineties. She is known primarily as a children’s book illustrator, with more than 150 titles to her credit. Amy specializes in whimsical, lighthearted themes and works in pencil, ink, and watercolors. She is the recipient of numerous awards for her illustrations. She and her husband, Mark, also an artist, live in Pennsylvania. They are the parents of three grown children. Besides drawing and painting (of course!), Amy loves to cook, sew, read, visit new places, and do fun things with her family, especially her six grandchildren!
