Do you notice that the moon follows you wherever you go? In A Moon of My Own (by Jennifer Rustgi, illustrated by Alison White) a young girl magically crosses continents, recognizing the familiar face of the moon (in all its phases) in scenes from the Taj Mahal to the Northern Lights.
Capturing the wonders of imagination in a charming conversation between a child and the moon, A Moon of my Own invites kids to pay attention to the nighttime sky and the larger forces at work that affect us no matter where we are from.
A Moon of My Own was recently selected to be part of Storytime from Space, which features astronauts reading picture books in the International Space Station. After doing a couple of back flips, astronaut Serena M. Auñón-Chancellor did a marvelous job of bringing A Moon of My Own to life for young viewers. Check out the video here!
