    Default moon does not have a face :)

    Hi,

    Please correct the grammar below

    ----------------------------------
    My four year daughter was reading a picture book. One of the page in the book, she noticed a moon having a smailing face. She shouted that this book is telling a lie as she never saw a real moon having an eye, nose and mouth. She further asked me if I was also agree with her.
    ----------------------------------

    Thanks
    Gauri

    My four-year-old daughter was reading ["looking at"/"leafing through" may be more appropriate, since you mention it to be "a picture book"] a picture book. In one of the pages in the book, she noticed a moon having with a smailing face. She shouted that this book is telling a lie as she never saw a the [real - IMO, this could be left out, as there's only "one" moon we can see directly] moon having an eye, nose and mouth. She further asked me if I was also agree with her.

    See amendments above. Someone may find other options, or correct some of them.
