Burying the Moon

Poulin, A.
This story, written in verse, allows readers to see the people, society, and values a young girl encounters as it highlights the societal rules and sanitation processes used in her community. Issues such as poverty and environmental conditions are examined through this poetic narrative, complemented with various illustrations. In an intermediate classroom, the book may invite students to reflect on the ecological impact caused by pollution and the importance of proper sanitation. Students may be encouraged to research and set goals to improve waste disposal systems in their local neighbourhoods.
