Grandmother Moon and Other Mother Stories: Book One offers traditional and new original folktales that explore the love, joy and challenges between mothers and children. "Epaminondas", a traditional folktale told to Becky Parker Geist by her mother, is about a boy who tries so hard to please his mother, but can't seem to get it right. "Grandmother Moon and the Homeless Child", is a touching story about searching for home. A little blue bird and a rock child play major roles in "Abuela and the Rock People". And Louisa-May's mischievous little sister Angel causes trouble in "Mama, Angel, and the Tree Dragon". In "Strawberry Moon and her Mother", Mother Moon helps her daughter express herself colorfully.
