Book Overview

The much-loved children's series that began with Tree: A Peek-Through Picture Book brings you an elaborate book with peek-through holes that show the moon's different phases with each turn of the page.

Over deserts and forests, Arctic tundra and tropical beaches, the moon shines down on creatures around the world. Children will love discovering how it changes from day to day as the lunar cycle is shown through clever peek-through holes, each revealing the moon in a different size and shape.

It's the perfect light nonfiction book for young stargazers--and an ideal bedtime book, ending with a giant moon hovering over a sleepy town hunkered down for bed.

Look for all the books in the Peek-Through Picture Book series: Tree, Bee, Ocean, and The Twelve Days of Christmas.

   Bad science
I bought this book for my 6th grade science students and my 3rd grade grandchildren. The gibber moon phase, when the earth's orbit is tilted 180 degrees, is what scientists call "pretty good." Then go downhill with the next pages showing the new moon, then the full moon again, skips waning gibbous and last quarter, ending with the waning crescent. Even with time, you can't correct the scientific inaccuracies people pick up on things in childhood. Leaving aside the ethical issues, this book does a real disservice to scientific literacy. Even if you think about it, I would not recommend it at all.
   Disappointing - inaccurate PLEASE FIX
It's disappointing, Byrne said. Bought this book to go along with our phases of the moon study. It's just that the moon never looks like the drawing. It's just that I took a razor blade to correct the lunar alignment. Realizing they are drawing as tortoises coming out of the sea, they stop. It would be wrong to call it a compliment, Mr. Rule told the judge.
   A moon on EVERY PAGE!
The book has received mixed reviews. The question is whether or not the lunar phases are truly seasonal. It's just that they don't have enough money." Kemp's Ridley turtles are not native to Florida. It's just that they don't have enough money." One year ago today, my then 1-year-old son was obsessed with the moon. It's just that they put it this way: "If you think about it, we're losing a lot of money." There is a moon on every page of this book. Engaging and pretty, too.
   Do not buy
The way this book is rated so well is beyond me. As previous reviewers have mentioned, the book is titled "Moon" and yet the moon phases are completely wrong.
   Moon phases not accurate!
Lovely illustrations, and I like the idea of cutout moon phases, but they are completely inaccurate and out of order! What a great opportunity to teach children about the different shapes of the moon and how they change, he said. This is not going to happen with your kids. I even tried to alter the moon shapes by re-cutting them, but the way the book is designed makes this difficult and there is no way to rearrange the order of the pages.
   Love it. Beautiful. Easy bedtime book.
His book was also highly recommended. My 22 year old son knows the moon and the animals, but he also has a fascination with mirrors. In "The Fall," Thomas Jefferson laments, "a society was founded on the belief that all men were created equal."
   Beautiful but inaccurate book
I was excited about this hardcover book with beautiful illustrations by Janet Constable, except that the moon phases are totally inaccurate. The idea of the moon shape cut out, but children are young and impressionable and will now always remember the way the moon shape is depicted in this book. Fortunately, my daughter recently learned about the way the moon looks in real life before she could read the book.
   Beautiful, high quality book
My 18-month-old is obsessed with the moon, so I got her this book, and she absolutely loves it. The pages are high quality stock that doesn't bend or tear easily, and the book is a nice large size. The writing is fine, nothing super special, though I do like how some pages talk about bird migration, sea turtles eggs, and other cyclical things that relate to the moon. They are just beautiful, and the moon cutouts are just fun, too. It's a beautiful book that would make a nice present.
   Lovely Aside From One Glaring Error
Another lovely book from Teckentrup, except for one glaring error. When reading this book the first time to my 2.5 year old, she pointed out that the picture of land turtles was not sea turtles. If a toddler knows this, how come the magazine's editors slipped?
   Moon is the wrong shape! How disappointing
The illustrations are adorable and really well done, said Blair. The lunar eclipse was caused by the wrong shape of the moon. A pretty glaring error in a book about the moon. 0 3171 3171 A pretty glaring error in a book about the moon. The phase of the moon is out of order, the scientists said. The book says the moon grows from crescent to full moon and then jumps straight to the new moon. The cutout book is a great idea, too, for children and adults alike. If the book had used illustrations, it would have been just lovely. The book could have been used by librarians to help children understand the lunar cycle.
