About the Book



"Moments after Eleanor's birth during a brilliant harvest moon, her grandfather holds her in his arms and tells her, "No matter where we are, we will always share the moon." And they do. As Eleanor grows, her grandpa teaches her to love the moon. Together they observe it in all its permutations as it waxes and wanes. Soon, Eleanor is able to see the moon in everything--even in the most unlikely places. When Eleanor and her parents move away, she misses her grandfather dreadfully. At first, moon sightings only make her miss him even more. But they find ways to make the distance feel shorter through letters and video calls, and soon Eleanor finds great comfort in the moon they share, making her feel like her grandfather is close by even when he's far away."--



Book Synopsis



A girl and her grandfather's shared love for the moon brings them comfort and keeps them close even when they're apart

Eleanor is born during a brilliant harvest moon. Moments after her birth, while she lies safely in her grandfather's arms, he tells her, "No matter where we are, we will always share the moon."

And they do. As Eleanor grows, her grandpa teaches her to love the moon. Together they observe it in all its permutations as it waxes and wanes. Soon, Eleanor sees the moon in everything, and when she and her parents move away, these moon sightings give her comfort and make her feel like her grandfather is close by.

A debut picture book from author/illustrator Maggie Knaus, Eleanor's Moon is a charming and cozy story that assures children a loved one can always be connected to them, even when they're apart.



Review Quotes




"The gentle tones of the illustrations echo the deep attachment that Eleanor and her grandfather have. They seem chalk-like, elemental and rich, a brilliant conveyance of their mutual affection and connection."-- "Canadian Review of Materials"

"This book had a very sweet message. It acknowledges the strong bond between granddaughter and grandfather. This book can help young children face their fears if have have to move away from someone they love."

"The illustrations, made up of vivid, flat colors (especially lovely during scenes set at night), are appealing; kids will especially enjoy picking out moon shapes on pages where Eleanor is reminded of Grandpa."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
