Astronomer, Jung Chang-hoon, offers readers an informational picture book about the cycle of the Moon. Easy to follow scientific explanations make this a great book to share with children off all ages who are curious about the moon.

Each double-page spread gives an explanation of the moon’s phase. At the bottom of each spread, in italics, is a more scientific explanation. 

Included is an Author’s Note that gives more facts about the Moon. 

Ho’s illustrations add the visual element to make this a must-have science book.
