Poetry Friday

Poetry Friday is hosted today by Picture Book of the Day.

My selection is "A Full Moon is Rising" by Marilyn Singer with illustrations by Julia Cairns.

Accomplished children's poetry Marilyn Singer takes readers on an around-the-world journey to explore the moon from multiple perspectives.  Her travels include New York skyscapes, coral reefs at spawning time, Hong Kong, Israel, Australia, the International Space Station, and the Sahara as she explores urban and rural, man-made and natural locales in search of lunar experiences to share.

Cairn's watercolors enliven the text in each double-page spread.
