Salas, Laura If you were the Moon. PICTURE BOOK. 20 pgs. Millbrook, 2017. $19.99.Content: G.
A small child wishes she was the moon because she thinks it doesn’t have to do much. The moon then tells her all of its many jobs. Each page contains one paragraph of factual information. For example: the story is that the moon plays peek-a-book with earth, then in the fact box the reader learns about the phases of the moon. Features large illustrations.
This book is a perfect introduction for young readers who are going to learn about the moon. I love the mini story woven in and the facts boxes. The illustrations are downright beautiful and the moon and earth having faces and expressions will make the topic more engaging.EL(K-3) –ADVISABLE Reviewer: Stephanie Elementary School Librarian & Author
