If You Were the Moon

If You Were the Moon
by Laura Purdie Salas (Author) and Jaime Kim (Illustrator)

Booktalk: What would you do if you were the moon? Do you think you would rest quietly in the night sky? Oh, no. The moon does so much more than you might imagine! It spins like a twilight ballerina, plays tug-of-war with the ocean, and lights a pathway for baby sea turtles. Discover the many other roles the moon plays . . .

Snippet:

Hover near your mother.

Scientists believe the moon formed 4.5 billion years ago when a meteorite the size of Mars collided with the newly formed Earth. Rock from Earth and the meteorite splashed into space, and the moon was born.

See the book trailer.
