Hi there! The moon is one of the most romanticized subjects in the world. The man in the moon. When the moon hits your eye. I see the moon and the moon sees me. So many classic songs, books, and movies are about the moon, and for good reason. Nothing is more enchanting than a glowing orange October harvest moon on a clear night.
Look At The Moon by May Garelick with pictures by Leonard Weisgard is a poetic look at the moon and everything is shines upon. The moon shines on the countryside with its wildlife and forests. The moon shines on the big city with its sky scrapers and traffic filled streets. It takes turns shining on the Western hemisphere and the Eastern hemisphere. I loved the picture of the sleepy koala about to tuck in for the night in his eucalyptus tree!
The illustrations are these black, white, and blue sketches that are really nice, and the language is written in poetic stanzas. We really enjoyed this.
