My three year-old daughter has asked many things of me. Quite a lot of them involve Hello Kitty and going to the park at inappropriate times. I’m quite thankful that she has not, as of yet, requested that I get the moon for her. I anticipate that this is probably coming, though...maybe even tonight.
Children’s book author Eric Carle’s Papa, please get the moon for me was originally published back in the mid-1980s and though it is not quite as well-known as, say, The Very Hungry Caterpillar it remains very popular work.
This weekend the UWM Peck School of the Arts brings a work inspired by Carle’s book to the stage. Tina Binns’ Papa and the Moon has been created for a staged reading. A girl asks her busy father to get the moon for her. (Again...something I can relate to a great deal...but I will likely be too busy getting the moon for my daughter to attend myself).
