This is a charmingly illustrated and simply told explanation of moon phases. Includes a fun and effective experiment using a flashlight, a pencil, and an orange. School Library Journal called it "a welcome addition to science collections for young children" helps children understand what the moon looks like at different phases and why it changes.
As with all books in this series, this title include a related experiment at the back. :)
