"Exquisite." -- New York Times

Follow our moon as it waxes and wanes across the night sky in this informative and stunning nonfiction picture book by an astronomer and award-winning illustrator.

Everyone on Earth can look up and marvel at our moon in the night sky. It is an experience we share across cultures and continents. As our closest celestial neighbor, the moon touches on many aspects of our lives and has inspired interest from people across centuries.

In The Moon Tonight , you can share that same sense of wonder with your child through the eyes of a father-daughter duo as they learn the science behind the twenty-nine-day lunar cycle and the moon's four phases: crescent, quarter, full, and new.

With age-appropriate and easy-to-follow scientific explanations by astronomer Jung Chang-hoon paired with stunningly beautiful acrylic drawings by an award-winning Bologna Book Fair Illustrator of the Year, Jang Ho, this picture book offers families a reading experience that is both poetic and educational.

A perfect STEM classroom read and bedtime story for little readers curious about where the moon goes and why!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Astronomer Chang-hoon introduces phases of the moon in this Korean import. Using simple yet clear language, the author describes the waxing and waning of the moon as it rises and sets, and its visibility in relation to the sun. Small thumbnail drawings reinforce these concepts while soft, lovely, and aptly luminous, large-scale illustrations feature a girl and her father participating in moonlit activities, such as fishing, stargazing, and attending a fair, in rural and urban Korean settings. Chang-hoon then invites readers to use a ball and a flashlight to experiment with phases of the moon on their own. The same girl depicted in the illustrations serves as a model for the experiment. In the final sections of the book, the author turns to moon-related topics, including tides, the lunar calendar, and fun facts. The latter also highlights Korean culture, such as folklore relating the moon's appearance to a bunny pounding rice with a mortar and pestle.Pair with Gail Gibbons' classic The Moon Book for another look at lunar phases and characteristics."
