Lisa Shulman’s The Moon Might Be Milk is sadly out of print. But the story can still be used in puppet form if you can’t get your hands on a copy of the book!
You’ll need farm animals (or substitute for what you own):
- Girl (named Rosie)
Rosie asks each animal what the moon is made of and they each answer:
- Cat = Milk
- Hen = Egg
- Butterfly = Sugar
- Dog = Butter
- Mouse = Flour
Rosie asks Grandma and she adds all of the answers to create a sugar cookie! The story can be used to discuss recipes or making predictions. I have an idea for a sequel (The Sun Might Be Cheese) and if I ever get it fleshed out enough I’ll post it. Until then, check out Mel’s Desk this week. She’s hosting Flannel Friday.
