The Chickadees and the Moon Above

(20 customer reviews)

Mother Chickadee loves her chicks very much. She knows that they will grow up and one day leave the nest. Her heart’s desire is that they become the best chickadees that they can be and find their place in the world. She tells them that no matter where they go, Chickadee Tree will always also be home. Wherever they roam, when they look up at the moon and think of her, she assures them that she’ll be looking at the same moon and thinking of them, too.

 

A beautifully illustrated and endearing tale that will capture the hearts of mothers and children of all ages. In addition to delighting young children, The Chickadees and the Moon Above is also perfect for new mothers, empty nesters, and little birdies who are leaving the nest. It promises to become the go-to Mother’s Day and graduation gift, as well a lovely baby shower present and an Easter basket treat.

Meet the Author

" Not yet a mother, Sara A. Simon wrote her first story to pay homage to every mother in her life, especially her own. She imparts the comforting notion that no matter how far away your loved ones may go, all you need to feel connected is to look up at the moon. Now that Sara is a mother herself, she is discovering the profound truth of her own words. She is hopeful that The Chickadees and the Moon Above will touch the hearts of mothers and children of all ages. "

The Chickadees and the Moon Above celebrates the enduring love of a mother for her children. The moon serves as a reminder that mother is always nearby and that her chickadees are always in her heart. This compact, elegant, dust-jacketed hardcover book works well on Valentine’s Day, but it is the perfect gift for Mother’s Day and for grads who are leaving the nest to become the best chickadees that they can be.

    Moms/Dads/Grandparents/Teachers/Humans everywhere – if you haven’t ordered this book yet, I encourage you to take a moment to do so. This is a book that needs to be in every daycare and elementary school and in every household with children, no joke. It’s incredibly impactful in supporting separation anxiety (for both kiddos and parents!). Those who truly know my kids know how each uniquely struggles with this. We’ve tried many books over the years (another favorite is The Invisible String if you are really looking build up your library), but their connection with the moon and its meaning in this book is amazing. I deeply mean it when I say it’s phenomenal and will help create confidence in connection even when we can’t be physically together.

    “As a mother, there is not much you can relate to more than the thought of your kids growing up and leaving the nest, and mother chickadee is no different. This is the age old story of children growing up and moving away, but nightly looking at the moon to remember home. This tale was truly brought to life with the watercolor illustrations that seemed to capture every feeling of the story. While I felt as though the story itself is one that has been told in many forms for generations, The Chickadees and the Moon Above was a cozy feel good book for a nice winter day with my daughter.

    Thank you to Independent Publishers Group and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for my honest review”

    “Having read hundreds of children’s books over the years, I must say I was confused y this storyline. Even though it’s supposed to be about the little birdies leaving the nest, that’s all there is. Don’t believe many children would connect to this family story. The focus seems to be about birdies leaving so they could be their best. Kids this young should have stories lighthearted and fun.
    I received an advanced reader copy for free from NetGalley and am voluntarily leaving my review.”

    “Thanks to Netgalley and Independent Publishers Group, CrissCross AppleSauce for a free digital copy.

    A sweet little story about a mother’s love and encouragement to her children to be the best they can me. A simple but straightforward message.”

  6. Laurie Seier

    Beautiful story for a young child or adult from a mother. After reading it, I could think of many reasons or occasions someone would purchase this book. I will read it to my grandchildren and give it to one of my adult children if they leave the area, graduate and move, etc.

  7. Diane DiStefano

    The Chickadees and the Moon Above reminds the reader of a parent’s love and sacrifice. For parents know if they do their job well, they’ll lose their babies to the world where new dreams will be pursued and realized. Sara Simon does a beautiful job of conveying the ‘forever connection’ of family…regardless of where life’s journey takes them…such a comforting theme.
    Each page of this book is worthy of framing. The illustrations show off Simon’s unique illustration style and talent. I found myself studying and admiring each picture.
    This will be THE book children and parents remember!

    Heartwarming story and beautiful artwork

  13. Jan Tangen

    A softly beautiful and well illustrated story that shows what every mother wants her children to know–that while she will always love them, she must let them go to be who they are meant to be. I requested and received a free temporary ebook from Independent Publishers Group/CrissCross AppleSauce via NetGalley. Thank you!

  14. Roseann Mohney

    The Chickadees and the Moon above is a wonderful book depicting a Mother’s love for her precious little ones. The reassurances the Momma gives to her littles is so very pertinent in the current state of our world. Children can be reminded that they are forever connected to their family no matter how far away they are when grown and on their own. The author’s’ depiction of the moon above is such an amazing reminder of a comforting way to remember that love and connection.
    The illustrations are amazingly beautiful and have been directly done by the talented author and artist,
    Truly a great read for Moms and the children they love.

  15. Erinn Blaser

    Have you ever read a book that just stayed with you? A book that you measure all other books against and see if they stand up? This is that book. I love children’s books, I grew up on them and read them now to my own children. When I read The Chickadees and The Moon Above to my littles they sat quietly and intently listened to ever word (this doesn’t always happen) and they have continued to ask for this book weekly in our nightly reading rotation. The illustrations are beyond beautiful, so much so you’ll want to pull pages and frame them. I can not recommend this book enough for everyone young or old. It can be enjoyed by anyone!

    “This is a sweet children’s book about a mother Chickadee and her three chicks. The message is simply about a mother’s love, and how your mother will always love you no matter where you are.

    The illustrations are well done in watercolor. I especially enjoyed the ones of the night sky.

    I received a free copy of this book via City of Light publishing. My review is voluntary and my opinions are my own.”
