    1. I like JLC's books (and I rarely say that about "celebrity authors"). This one is cute enough. Puts some big pressure on a mom. Rhymes didn't feel super forced. Just a bit excessive.Not as fond of the illustrations. But that's more personal preference than saying they were not well done.

    2. This story is about a little boy that believes his Mommy can (and does) do everything. Mommy's are awesome! A cute book about the bond between a mother and child.

    3. I read My Mommy Hung The Moon: A Love Story, by Jamie Lee Curtis, after seeing one of her books in the children’s library I volunteer at. It’s a cute picture book based on the love between a mother and child. Naturally, the child thinks everything of their mother, who can do anything.I had no idea that Curtis was an author and wanted to check out some of her work. Being a person who has dabbled in writing children’s stories, I wonder how much of her fame helped Curtis with authoring and pu [...]

    4. Some of Curtis's books can get a little wordy, but they are all on a child's level. This book is more direct in verbage, and heavy on illustrations (busy!). The little person in the book thinks that Mommy can, and does, do everything. Sweet little story.

    5. This story is about a little boy who loves his mother so much that he believes she can do anything, such as making rainbows, growing all the food, to making every kind of ball and music. The illustrations in the book help to show everything that this little boy believes his mother can do. The most powerful part of the text is when the little boy says, "I dream about how she gave me my start. I love my mommy with all of my heart." This is powerful because it really shows how much younger children [...]

    6. We've read this book several times, but tonight was very special. My son read it to his little sister. Here's how the conversation went after the story was finished. (N is my son. M is my daughter.)M: Mom, I know you didn't really do all those things, but I love you anyway.N: I know. It's cool. Mama does so much. It's like she really did make everything in the world, but I know it's really Mother Nature.M: Nu uh. It was God. N: Oh, yeah. Is Mother Nature like his helper?M: Ask Mommy. She knows e [...]

    7. Jamie Lee Curtis, My Mommy Hung the Moon (Joanna Cotler Books, 2010)I wasn't terribly fond of this one, and while we had it out of the library for a three-week span, the Bean never actually asked for it the way he does with the books he really enjoys, and he is obsessed with all things moon. The rhyme is thudding, the language is simplistic (I know that seems an odd thing to complain about in a pre-lit book, but contrast it to, say, Victoria Adler's books and you can easily see the difference). [...]

    8. This book was about a child and the view of their Mom through their eyes. This child adores their mother and thinks she is spectacular. The child tells how their Mom does everything even hanging the moon. I thought this book was super cute! The illustrations are very colorful. I think kids would love this because most kids think highly of their moms and love them very much.This book could be used to read to preschool children. It is a lower level book and easy to understand. Preschoolers especia [...]

    9. 3.5 - I usually stay away from books written by celebrities unless they're memoirs/bios or I want to read it in the same way one looks at a car accident. If I remember correctly I picked up Curtis' first book by accident, thinking it looked cute and not knowing it was written by her. So far we've read a few and have liked each one. This is a fun, rhyming book and I have to agree with some other reviewers who said the rhymes feel a bit "forced". Just not the easiest to read I think.I found the il [...]

    10. Mommy's can do everything! This little boy tells the world of all the things his mommy does for him and how cool she is. He loves his mommy and is amazed at all the magical things she knows how to do. This is a really sweet book. It reminds me of my relationship with my mom. I sill think she can fix any problem I have or help me with any situation!This would be a great book for mother's day but special attention needs to paid to kids who do not have a mom or who have a bad relationship with thei [...]

    11. "My mommy hung the moon.She tied it with string.My mommy's good at EVERYTHING."I like the plot but the delivery was shaky. The rhymes were a bit of a stretch and the illustrations was bland and cluttered. But again, I do like and agree that mommies are good at EVERYTHING daddies too, I'd like to add.***Find this review and more at Jinky is Reading

    12. I loved this book! My Mommy Hung the Moon really is a love story between the author and their mom. Describes all the different ways she loves her mommy, and truly is an endearing book to read to a class to pass the time, or to read for Mother's Day. Includes rhyming, very colorful and imaginative illustrations. "She buzzed every bee.She spun every spider.She growled every bear.She striped every tiger."<333

    13. This book is specifically about mothers so I would be sensitive to if you have students who do not have a mother or a have mother present. You could use this book to talk about heroes in children's lives or the person they look up to or who takes care of this. This would be a great book to modeling a writing piece after if children wanted to. It has kind of a return home thing going on at the end so this could also be an example of that.

    14. I didn't really dig this book, but it gets 4 stars because my four year-old loved it. I specifically didn't like the strained rhythm and rhymes, which made it sort of hard to read. I also didn't like the reference to a screwdriver as an ear probe for large aliens. While, sure, whatever, I felt compelled to point out that this is a silly and bad whenever I read it. But, as I said, the girl loved it.

    15. This book is about a mother who can do everything. It is written from son's point of view and the love between them is great. This book would be perfect for mother's day! There are so rhyming and the illustrations are very creative and eye catching. The little sides notes are funny too. Very cute book. Grade K-2

    16. I wish my kids still thought this way! This book is from the point of view of a young one who says that his mom "Hung the moon" and many more things. Watch the illustrations carefully for the way that the mom gets everything done. A very sweet, funny book. It left me smiling for quite a while after reading it.

    17. A great book about unconditional love between mother and child. I really enjoyed this book as I am a mother of 4. I think this would be a great gift to give an expectant mother. My 1st grade class wrote letters to their mothers to express their love and appreciation to them. This would have been a great read to lead into that writing lesson.

    18. Who knew Jamie Lee Curtis was so multi-talented? This is an excellent children's story with beautiful illustrations about all the wonderfully amazing things that children believe their mommies capable of. She grows the food and cooks from scratch and writes all the books in the library and makes the sun shine and the night sky dark. Mommy is the best :) I can get behind these sentiments.

    19. His is the first Jamie lee Curtis book that we haven't loved. My kids believe in a 6 day creation story and were very vocal about how the book was wrong. I'm glad we only checked this one out at the library instead of purchasing it. For a family who doesn't follow the Biblical view of creation it would be very sweet and touching I'm sure. My kids just couldn't get past it to enjoy it.

    20. It's new and I did see Jamie Lee Curtis plugging this on the Today Show, so I picked it up. It's not bad, a little busy on many of the pages and the rhyming isn't quite right to read-aloud, but I enjoyed the concept. It reminded me of a few of the "daddy" books that I've picked up over the last few months. Kid idolization.

    21. This is cute book about how mummy's can be good at everything! I really enjoyed this book because it takes us into the endless list of things moms always do for their kids. It's a cute love story between a child and his mom! Must read for younger children

    22. The fun is looking in the details and background: the goth teen girl lugging groceries, the description of the toilet plunger as an 'important information extractor'.(Why does a children's book need two pages of dedications?)

    23. I love love love this book. I bought it for my mommy who hung me the moon for her birthday. It is a very touching book that will make you smile and cry. It is illustrated quite well and is definitely worth buying whether you are a child or not.

    24. This is a great story that emphasizes just how amazing Mommies can be. Ideas like turning one batch of cookies into all the masterpieces of the world really get the imagination going. With a sweet plot and story line, this is a great book to have at home and in the classroom.

    25. Mommy propaganda! I've always liked JLC's picture books. I like this one too. I'm reading it at home and enjoying life when my kids will still believe it.Would be a good gift for an expecting mama.

    26. This is a fun book to read to kids for them to notice and appreciate their mommies. The students can write a paper on the things their moms do for them. They can design and make cards for their appreciation. This book also have rhyme so students can predict the rhyming words when they read.

    27. this is just about my favorite children's book. I am almost cried (okay I did) it made me so happy. Just thinking about the adoration that most children have for their mothers. Like there is no one better in the world than your mother

    28. If a sickneningly sweet, excessive "tribute" to Mommy were done in clever fashion, I might not be so opposed to it. This falls way short of the mark. It is one of the books I have actively hidden from my daughter because I just couldn't take it (right next to a Pinkalicious book someone gave us).

    29. I usually like Jamie Lee Curtis' books a lot, but this one just didn't do it for me. The illustrations were a bit too frenetic, I think, and I was a little confused about who the goth-looking teenager was until about midway through the book. Not my favorite.

    30. It's fun to look at the Goth girl in all of the pictures. She usually tells the reality of the story. I received this as a Mother's Day present from my son, so it's pretty special when he asks me to read it to him. I often wonder what he thinks I do that's amazing (that really isn't, in reality).
