The Moonling, by Tjaart Lehmacher and Paula Oelofsen is the perfect coming-of-age storybook to help children connect with nature. Meet a Moonling longing for the earth, and a ten-year-old Earthling, named Karl, who wants nothing more than to explore the moon and the stars. By happy chance these two kindred beings find each other, as well as a sense of awe for life around them. But the more the moon man sees of this green and blue planet the more homesick he gets. To him it is clear that the earth is far more beautiful from far away. As their friendship grows, so do the questions. And as Karl figures out a plan to get the Moonling back to the moon, one has to wonder: Is it possible for a little creature of stone, to awaken in hearts of flesh, a love for this place we call home? While the book is aimed at an audience of early readers between the ages of 5 to 9, this coming-of-age story is told with such emotion, love and adventure that it will appeal to readers of all ages. The book costs R212,99 which includes free shipping to anywhere in South Africa and R20 donation to Read2Lead. For more information or to purchase the book visit
