The Moon is always changing--or at least it sure looks that way. Through a series of chapters that provide children with necessary background information, this book gradually and satisfyingly explains how Earth’s rotation affects the lunar phases we see in the night sky.

“I’ve written about the Moon before. The challenge here was thinking about its monthly cycle in a whole new way. The book answers the question in the title in the final chapter, so I had to figure out how to give students all the background information they needed in a fun and interesting way."
