Reviews

'I See the Moon'

. Highly recommended. Books for Keeps A book about observation, and children will enjoy comparing the vivid descriptions and images of the moon to what they have seen in the sky at night. Ibby Link Not only is it a magical book to have in the classroom to stimulate imagination, but a great book to read to youngsters at home as a gentle parallel for when they go to bed at night. It can also be used as a basis for several lessons. School Librarian
