Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me
by Eric Carle

This "splendid introduction to the monthly lunar cycle" (Publ. Weekly) features Eric Carle's trademark bright, uncluttered illustrations and simple storyline about a girl who wants to 'play' with the moon and a father's efforts to make that possible.

This book does not explain why the moon waxes and wanes but, as it is centered around this phenomenon, would encourage children to observe the moon's changes firsthand.

And children and adults alike will enjoy this beloved tale about a father’s love!  :)
