Synopsis

Moonbird by Joyce Dunbar

Moonchild was blowing bubbles. Big, pearly moon bubbles they were, floating off into outer space. Some burst upon the spikes of stars. Some floated all the way to earth and burst wherever they landed. A Moonchild blows a bubble that pops on an Earth baby and surrounds him in silence. His parents, a King and Queen, are devastated when they realize that their baby cannot hear or speak. But a Moonbird teaches the little prince how to use his hands and eyes to communicate. This is a beautifully written story, sumptuously illustrated by Jane Ray.
