Papa Please Get The Moon For Me
This is one of famous stories for kids which has been adapted from the original work of Eric Carle, “Papa Please Get The Moon For Me”. Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Monica. One night before Monica was about to go to her bed, she looked out of her window and saw the moon. The moon looked so near. “I wish I could play with the moon,” thought Monica, and reached for it. But no matter how much she stretched, she could not touch the moon.
“Papa,” said Monica to her father, “Please get the moon for me!” Papa got a very long ladder. He carried the very long ladder towards a very high mountain. Then Papa put on the very long ladder on the top of the very high mountain. Up and up and up he climbed.
Finally, Papa got to the moon. “My daughter, Monica would like to play with you, but you are much too big!” said Papa. “Every night I get a little smaller. When I am just the right size, you can take me with you,” said the moon. You may also like, The Very Hungry Caterpillar Story by Eric Carle.
Indeed, the moon got smaller and smaller and smaller. When the moon was just the right size, Papa took it. Down and down and down he climbed. “Here!” said Papa to Monica, “I have the moon for you.” Monica jumped and danced with the moon. She hugged the moon and threw it into the air. But the moon kept getting smaller and smaller and smaller. And finally, it disappeared altogether.
Then, one night, Monica saw a thin silver sliver of the moon reappear. Each night the moon grew and grew and grew until it reached its original size. She was happy to see the Moon again in the sky.
