A Lesson from the Moon

[Written Especially for Children]

Janet loved to watch the full moon. It beamed upon her through the nursery window as she lay in her little bed, tucked in for the night, warm and cozy. Just like one of mother's shiny new pie plates, she thought. For Janet was a very young person, to whom permission was often given to sit by the kitchen table while her mother baked.

Sometimes while she was looking at the moon, she made up reasons to suit herself about how it was that a pie plate ever got up in the sky and how it could stay up there. Of course, if she had spoken to her mother about it, she could have found out all she wanted to know, for mother was wise about giving answers to questions. But since Janet did not say anything to anyone about the moon, she went on believing in her own way.
