Faces of the Moon
Bob Crelin, illustrated by Leslie Evans

Called a “completely unique book” and recommended by the National Science Teachers Association, Faces of the Moon is the latest children’s book from CT author/designer Bob Crelin (There Once Was a Sky Full of Stars). Told, for the first time through rhyming verse and beautiful illustrations, Faces of the Moon is a playful, interactive lesson on the Moon and her changing phases. Creative die-cut pages accurately animate the phasing Moon as each page turns. Released for the UNESCO International Year of Astronomy 2009 and the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, Faces of the Moon will delight children, and spark their curiosity about our nearest celestial neighbor.
