Description


Summertime can be boring, especially when you don't have nothing to do. 6-year-old Nakia is bored at home. Her mom works most of the weekdays and does not have time to play. It's hard for Nakia to understand why her mom can't play with her. Nakia is impatient; her only wish is to play all day long. One night, the Moon sees sad looking Nakia and makes a promise to help her out. The Moon agrees to grant Nakia a wish, but under one condition. Nakia was too excited about getting her wish that she forgot all about this condition. Nakia wished for her mom to be a kid again so she could play all day. Nakia gets her wish. And as times goes on, Nakia begins to understand why playing all day is not sustainable. In fact, it was tiring. Nakia finally learns the importance of waiting and listening in this plot-twisting fairytale.
