BOOK REVIEW: Jude's Moon by Nancy Guettier and Illustrator Tina Walsh


BLURB:


New Moon, Full Moon and the phases in between, "Jude s Moon "is a delightful story of a little boys fascination with the moon and how it mysteriously changes shape.

Jude loves how the moon and sun share the sky and turn night to day and day to night.

He loves the moon so much he thinks it s his moon. The moon becomes his best friend.

One day he noticed the moon was not round. He thought it looked like a Croissant. His Brother laughed and corrected him and told him it was a Cresent Moon. Jude was excited to learn more about how the moon changes shapes. Jude goes on his own exploration to find the answers and unlock the secret of the Phases of the Moon.

The illustrations are appealing and whimsically illustrated by Tina Cash-Walsh. Tina s illustration illuminate in an easy to understand way how the moon orbits earth and how the sun shine illuminates portions of the moon for us to see giving the appearance of the changing shapes.

Kids and Parents will enjoy this story and it will inspire them to want to do additional research on the subject."


REVIEW BY: Angelina, age 9 years, 4 months

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

This book was very enjoyable for me. 

This book was about a boy named Jude and he loved the moon so much. He called the moon "Jude's Moon" and said the moon was his very best friend. He always had a big smile when he saw the moon. One day he came out to see moon and the moon wasn't big and round. He went and got his big ladder so he could see what happened to his best friend. After that, Jude learned about the phases of the moon. 

My favorite character is the moon because at night I like looking at the moon. It makes me feel calm and relaxed because it's so beautiful to look at. 

My favorite part is when it is night because it is really neat. I also enjoyed learning about the moon phases. It was like science class!

I recommend this book to kids that love science, teachers that want to teach their class about moon phases and parents that love to read with their kids. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 9.
