From the creators of the highly-acclaimed The Squiggle, here is an imaginative introduction to the phases of the moon for young children. As the little girl in The Squiggle fancies a string to be many things, here, Selene uses her imagination to understand the moon's waxing and waning. She tells her Grandpa how she relates the different lunar phases to familiar concepts--the new moon is a Hiding Moon, the crescent moon is a Boat Moon like grandpa's dory, the half moon is a Basket Moon like mama's knitting basket. When the moon is two-thirds full, it is a Cheeky Moon, like Baby Nico's round, chubby cheeks, and the full moon is a Treasure Moon, like pieces of pirates' silver. Enhanced by Pierr Morgan's beguiling, fluid illustrations, Sometimes Moon is a terrific teaching tool on a subject of universal appeal. Includes an informational spread, clearly depicting the lunar progression.
