Brief Summary: From HarperCollins-“This clear and appealing science book for early elementary age kids, both at home and in the classroom, introduces basic information about the moon.”
Ideas for using this book in classroom or library – I am not sure what the current market is for science picture books, but I am not sure if this book, while obviously used in the public library setting, would still be in circulation in a school library. However, I do think that this book would be excellent as a visual representation of the phases of the moon that could also be used for older children. The activity in the book would also be something that could be done as a class.
Whatever additional notes you’d like to add about this book and why you liked or didn’t like it – Because I am not sure that this would even be in circulation in a school library, I don’t know that I recommend this one.
