Desde los dÃas de primeros humanos, la gente ha usado el folclore para explicar porque ocurren los eventos de la naturaleza. Con la influencia de los cuentos tradicionales de los Nativo Americanos, esta fascinante historia explica las fases de la luna, mientras provee una lecciÃ³n de vida para los niÃ±os cuando ellos observan como la luna es capaz de supercar la adversidad y construir la confianza en sÃ misma. DespuÃ©s de que el sol la insulta, la luna estaba muy ofendida y desapareceâ€”mucho para el disgusto de los conejos quienes la extraÃ±an en sus jugueteos a la luz de la luna. Con la ayuda de sus muchos amigos y admiradores, la luna recobra la confianza en sÃ misma hasta que vuelve a su tamaÃ±o natural.
