Your youngsters can become expert "moonfinders!"
Moonfinder is the story of a little boy who learns about the phases of the moon through his father's easy-to-understand explanations. Each night, over the course of a month, he looks up to notice the changes in the moon's phases and position in the sky.
Beautifully illustrated, each page features a full-color painting that depicts the actual location and appearance of each lunar phase, along with celestial views that show the corresponding position of the moon in orbit around the earth. These help students understand how the astronomy behind the moon's changing phases corresponds to the changing positions of the moon in the sky. The story also includes a note at the end with detailed information for continuing your study of the moon and its phases.
With Moonfinder, cultivate an interest in science and nature as the entire family learns how to follow the monthly cycle of the moon! 32 full-color pages, hardcover.
