Finding Monkey Moon by Elizabeth Pulford –NO

Pulford, Elizabeth Finding Monkey Moon Candlewick, 2015. $15.99 PICTURE BOOK
A little boy named Michael has lost his toy monkey, named Monkey Moon. His father takes him in the night back to the park to search for monkey moon.
Pre-schoolers would relate to being attached to a stuffed animal, but I think that parents would not want to push the idea that a child must have that animal above all else. I still remember my friends child screaming for hours when her bunny was lost. I don't think reinforcing that concept it a great thing. The illustrations are dark and depressing.
