A Full Moon Rising

A Full Moon Rising by Marilyn Singer, illustrated by Julia Cairns

This picture book features poems set around the world, all dealing with the full moon and way it looks or how it is percieved by people. A book with both poetry and science? Sign me up! Included in the book is a map showing where in the world each of the poems tell about. Also, there is a paragraph describing the science and/or social science behind each poem. I recommend this book for all fans of both the moon and poems.

This review is based on a publisher supplied electronic copy.

Until next time, bon voyage and happy reading!
