If You Were the Moon

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Jaime Kim. Whimsy and science blend smoothly in this combination bedtime story and astronomy book. As a girl gazes at the sky from bed, the moon lyrically describes its activities: "Spin like a twilight ballerina" is turning on its axis, and so on. Luminous acrylic and digital illustrations enhance the text, with the fanciful phrasing on the left and moon facts on the right-hand sides of the spreads. Reading list. Glos.
