Moonshadow Mae: New Release by Rosie Russell

From the Author

Mae is a happy girl and loves many things.

One thing she adores the most is the moon.
She is in awe of the glowing shine and the shadows left behind.
Come along and enjoy this rhyming tale as Mae explores 
the wonders of the atmosphere above.
Enclosed are fun facts, special craft, and a yummy recipe in the back of this book.

From Mrs.D

My grandson, who is a preschooler, has recently become interested in the solar system, specifically the moon, and “Moonshadow Mae” by Rosie Russell is the perfect book to help introduce a young child to lunar facts. The bouncing rhyming story and the colorful artwork will hold young readers’ attention, and the interesting information that this book provides will plunge them into many exciting details about science and the moon, generously provided at the end of the story. The text splits the information well between the pages so that there isn't too much text per page. The author did a fantastic job with simple explanations and other useful material about the moon, describing complicated concepts in terms that are easy to comprehend for a young child.

The illustrations are eye-catching, engaging, and showcase the text well. The story is creative, sweet, and well thought through; there is literally something for everyone at all levels in this book, appropriate for a four-year-old to a ten-year-old. It's easy to understand, visually appealing, and very interesting.

I loved how the author explained the science of the moon with the cool images, which make perfect sense and really get kids to understand the perspective. The drawings are well done, clear, and vivid. There are lots of specifics, which could lead to other lines of study. The wording flows easily and isn't overwhelming or extra lengthy. I recommend this book for every young astronomer in the making. Young readers will be delighted to explore the story part by part along with the colorful artwork! It is highly recommended for hours of fun!
