About the Book"This book inspires children to observe the Moon. Readers will learn how the Moon's changing shape is caused by its orbit around the Earth."--
Book SynopsisThis fascinating book will stay with children every time they gaze up at the night sky. Through vivid pictures and engaging explanations, children will learn about many of the Moon's mysteries: what makes it look like a silvery crescent one time and a chalk-white ball a few nights later, why it sometimes appears in the daytime, where it gets its light, and how scientists can predict its shape on your birthday a thousand years from now. Next Time You See the Moon is an ideal way to explain the science behind the shape of the Moon and bring about an evening outing no child--or grown-up--will soon forget.
