Desde los días 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 lección de vida para los niños cuando ellos observan como la luna es capaz de supercar la adversidad y construir la confianza en sí misma. Después de que el sol la insulta, la luna estaba muy ofendida y desaparece—mucho para el disgusto de los conejos quienes la extrañan en sus jugueteos a la luz de la luna. Con la ayuda de sus muchos amigos y admiradores, la luna recobra la confianza en sí misma hasta que vuelve a su tamaño natural.
