A Full Moon Is Rising

Marilyn Singer, illus. by Julia Cairns. Lee & Low, $19.95 (48p) ISBN 978-1-60060-364-8
Singer's sparkling verses celebrate the majesty of the moon as experienced in settings around the world, each distinctly conveyed in Cairns's perceptive watercolors. A "Broadway Moon" peers between skyscrapers as a girl, "an audience of one/ watches and silently applauds." In Haifa, Israel, a family gathers for a meal under a sukkah: "Come rejoice in the fair harvest,/ in the harvests long past,/ and the ones yet to come." The lunar celebration even extends beyond Earth, with a scientist in the International Space Station contemplating both Earth's moon and the Martian moon, Phobos. The breadth of perspectives creates a stirring portrait of a familiar but no less marvelous sight. Ages 6–up. (May)
