Millie and the moon

How did it get so dark? Millie wasn’t sure. All she knows is that she’s scared. Clutching her teddy bear helped a little, but she always felt safest when Moon glowed just outside her window. Could Moon return full and bright each night like Millie asked? Would others notice? What harm could there be in that? Moon remembered what it felt like to be afraid.

This sweet story begins with a vulnerable mouse named Millie who eventually learns that although the moon can’t stay full for her each night, it always comes back. With help from Moon, Millie is able to put her fear of the dark aside when she realizes that what might be good for one is not always good for all.
