If You Were the Moon

Millbrook Press, 2017
A quiet bedtime story that introduces all the things the moon does, like “Tease the Earth: peek-a-boo!” (no moon to full moon) and “Challenge the ocean to a tug-of-war.” (gravity) Each page explains how the moon ‘plays peek-a-boo and ‘tug-of-war’. Personifying the moon, children will see the moon as their friend. Adults will likely learn a little about the moon, too.
