    With pictures by Garth Williams, the story is told of a curious little raccoon who wants to go outside to explore and play at nighttime. Despite this, his mother keeps telling him to wait, wait until the moon is full. The little raccoon is full of questions for his mother and she sings answers to him. Finally the moon is full and the raccoon is allowed to go out and play, but the moon is bright enough so that it is not even dark anymore. I think this book was very cute for that reason, and you do not really catch it unless you pay attention to the illustrations. Additionally, it teaches about the dark, nighttime creatures, moon phases and patience, and is therefore perfect for the classroom.

    A sweet poetic story about patience and the moon.Ages: 4 - 7#bedtime**Like my reviews? I also have hundreds of detailed reports that I offer too. These reports give a complete break-down of everything in the book, so you'll know just how clean it is or isn't. I also have Clean Guides (downloadable PDFs) which enable you to clean up your book before reading it! Visit my website: The Book Radar.

    this absolutely delightful children's book is fully illustrated by Garth Thompson, and tells about a young raccoon who hungers to go out and play. But his mother warns him to wait until the moon is full. the book is full of songs that the mother sings as she rocks her youngster (that the adult reader gets to make up tunes to). i think it encourages children's curiosity and bravery about the dark, and showcases many mammalian creatures who can be found outside only at nighttime. These animals are personified, and the mother raccoon is warm and loving and the child raccoon is fun loving and as persistent as any child who consistently and constantly asks for something, only to be put off just a little longer.The book teaches children that the dark is a warm and cozy place, and when the moon is full is such a special time that "all creatures who love the dark come out when the moon is full."

    The story is told about a curious little raccoon who wants to go outside to explore and play at nighttime but his mother keeps telling him to wait, wait until the moon is full. The little raccoon is full of questions for his mother and she sings answers to him. It made me laugh because at the end when she allows him to go outside because the moon is full, it is light out and everyone is playing. She tricks him by saying the sun if a full moon yet the raccoon is happy as can be. It teaches about the dark, nighttime creatures, moon phases, and patience. I thought this book was really cute. There are several opportunities for lessons when reading this book. It could be read before a science lesson on the phases of the moon and the class could make a module of the moon phases to hold up during the story.

    A mother raccoon has tricky answers when her young raccoon is curious about the night. She continues to find reasons to have him wait, like the sun is down, he needs to find his bed, etc. This is another of Margaret Wise Browns' books that are simple and delightful, fulfilling a place in our lives every time. It will start a nice discussion with young children about the night. It will be another nice bedtime story.

    Brown and Williams are the perfect match for children's stories. In this one, a young raccoon wants to go outside and play at night. His mother tells him throughout the month to wait until the moon is full. It's a cute story that teaches about time, the phases of the moon and the animals of the forest.

    I think I'm choosing the ones that Ethan actually asked for more than once. This little raccoon is so Ethan, and the writing is one of Margaret Wise Brown's most magical (like The Color Kittens and Goodnight Moon).

    This was my favorite book growing up. I could proably tell you the story without even having the book. It is about Racoon who wants to go out and play, but his mom keeps telling him to wait, wait till the moon is full.

    A book you can get at the library to talk to kids about patience. My kids love the pictures and little raccoon.

    Not my favorite of Margaret's books but it does have a fun sing-songy message

    This is a charming story about a curious young raccoon obeying his mother's wish to wait until he is old enough to explore outside the den.

    One of the first picture books I ever used in a story time, back when I was a new children's librarian.
