Reviews

Gr 1-3‘The moon sails regally over darkened lawns and houses in Gibbons's simple, bright paintings with brief, precisely worded explanations running beneath the artwork. Primary readers will find, in just the right amount of detail, answers to their questions about our planet's closest natural companion: its origins and phases, what causes tides and eclipses, the people and spacecraft that have been sent there, and even some of the stories and beliefs it has inspired. The author includes directions for making a simple solar eclipse viewer and finishes with a chronology, a sampling of moon legends and lore, and a page of additional facts. Wide in scope and visually appealing, this book will serve pleasure and purposeful readers equally well.‘John Peters, New York Public Library
