A moose book that is "moose" enjoyable!

We love reading books, and when we come across a real winner we like to share it with you!  Of course, the fact that the main character is a moose certainly doesn't hurt.

In This is a Moose by Richard T. Morris and Tom Lichtenheld, they regale us with the making of a film about moose. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, Moose is not playing the part of a moose very well at all.  He has bigger aspirations than just being a typical moose doing typical moose things. Actually, what Moose wants is to become an astronaut, which has the duck director all but quacking up!  Then Moose's grandmother enters the film explaining how she had a dream of being a lacrosse player as a young moose.  The director thought he saw it all until  Regal Giraffe joins the film. His dream was to be a doctor. A Doctor Giraffe in the middle of the woods??? It was "moose" unbelievable to Duck Director who just can't understand why none of the animals are acting like they are expected to act. We won't spoil the ending. We'll just leave it as is out of this world!

We really loved the message in this story.  Dream...dream big...set goals for yourself and don't let others influence your decision.  We, as domesticated moose ourselves, have learned that the sky is the limit.  When we were first rescued from the wild, we never thought we'd be able to do the things that we can do now...most of which are not considered "typical moose behaviors".  If we let others stop us, we would be missing out on so much.  Here are a few of our favorite things...

Sleeping in a house

Playing outside in the leaves


Bobbing for meatballs on Halloween


Eating human food like chili (pictured here)
or pizza and meatballs

Hanging out with friends

Laying out in the sun...poolside



River rafting

None of this would have been possible if we just acted like typical moose running and foraging in the forest eating twigs and berries.  None of this would have happened if we didn't dream big!

We give the story  This is a Moose our highest honors with our four hoof rating and our seal of approval!
