Like a perfect day at the beach, Crab Moon leaves an indelible memory of a special adventure, and a quiet message about doing our part to preserve earth's oldest creatures.

One June night, under the full moon, Daniel’s mother wakes him up to see the extraordinary sight of horseshoe crabs spawning on the beach, just as they have every spring for an awesome 350 million years. But when Daniel returns in the morning, he finds only one lonely crab, marooned upside down in the sand. Can he possibly save it? Like a perfect day at the beach, Crab Moon leaves an indelible memory of a special adventure between parent and child, and a quiet message about doing our part to preserve even earth’s oldest creatures. Back matter includes a note about horseshoe crabs.

About the Author

Ruth Horowitz is "drawn to species that get overlooked because they're not big-eyed or cuddly or cute. I hope this book will show readers the rewards of reaching out to a being that may seem utterly alien at first glance."

Kate Kiesler makes her home in the mountains but enjoyed painting the seashore. "On a snowy day I could walk into my studio and be at the beach. Sometimes I could almost smell the salty air."

This story about a young boy's discovery about the spawning of horseshoe crabs and their journey to the ocean would be a great connection to science curriculum. The illustrations are beautifully created and give life to this story. Please note that this book should be connected to younger students and may not intrigue the older elementary student.
