Molly's Moon Mission
Molly is small, she is a moth after all, and she is repeatedly told that her aspirations of visiting the moon will forever remain a dream. Visiting the moon is no easy adventure particularly when you’re as small as Molly but that does not deter her. You see Molly is determined, she has self belief and as the story progresses she gets stronger and more confident. There are failed attempts, some a little comical but Duncan Beedie’s inclusion of such attempts are important in sharing with young readers that with determination AND hard work you can do great things. Also, a failed attempt shouldn’t simply be seen as something that went terribly wrong but a positive lesson that needs to be reflected upon. Duncan Beedie has skillfully written and illustrated a super book. The book highlights the perseverance Molly has. The illustrations through out are brilliant and I’m so pleased that my little boy has met a character as driven and focused as Molly.
