This colorful, humorous story from the Rhyme, Laugh and Learn series reveals the unusual daily eating habits of the moon-dwelling Lunatrons. It is these habits that twins Jimmy and Jane discover give the moon its yellowish tinge visible on a dark starry night. But when the Lunatrons regular lunar diet is disrupted, that once yellow tinge morphs into green, orange and an ever -widening array of colors and patterns.
Jimmy and Jane and the Tale of the Yellow Moon uses the hallmark rhyming patterns of the Rhyme, Laugh and Learn series to teach elementary school children about what happens when they mix primary colors together. It also introduces gentle messages of friendliness and forgiveness. As is the standard with this series, activity pages are included at the end to carry the multiple messages of the book into the home and classroom.
