Your Moon, My Moon: A Grandmother's Words to a Faraway Child

(4) K-3 Illustrated by Bryan Collier. A grandmother reminds her grandchild of times they have shared and describes the ways their lives are the same and different. She explains that both are looking at the same moon. Collier's handsome illustrations alternate between images of Africa and images of the United States. The text, soothing and sentimental, may have greatest appeal to grandparents missing their distant grandchildren.
