Overview

Over 70 years ago, Italian author Gianni Rodari wrote The Moon of Kyiv to remind us of the humanity we all share. 100% of the net profit from the sale of this book will be donated to Save the Children fund for supporting children impacted by the conflict in Ukraine. In 1955, beloved Italian poet Gianni Rodari penned a nursery rhyme called The Moon of Kyiv . It was a poem about our shared humanity - the poem reminding us that, no matter where we're from, or where we live, we all exist under the same moon. In the days following the outbreak of war in Ukraine, these lyrical words went viral in Italy: they became a call for peace. Six decades later, they resonate, and feel more relevant, than ever before. Now, for the very first time, the poem has been illustrated by the incredible Beatrice Alemagna, whose beautiful pictures match Rodari's words in hope, purity and power.
