Abstract


  • Some things are best seen at a distance. In Eric Carle's book Papa Please Get the Moon for Me

    (1986), a father silently obliges his daughter by building an enormous ladder on top of a mountain.

    Once captured, the moon slowly fades as its beauty is found to be contingent and relative. Carle

    introduces young children to different forms of knowledge; experiences constructed between the

    discoveries of Galileo and Kepler and tuned by the wonders of phenomena behaving badly.
