The much-loved children’s series that began with Tree: A Peek-Through Picture Book brings you an elaborate book with peek-through holes that show the moon’s different phases with each turn of the page.
Over deserts and forests, Arctic tundra and tropical beaches, the moon shines down on creatures around the world. Children will love discovering how it changes from day to day as the lunar cycle is shown through clever peek-through holes, each revealing the moon in a different size and shape.
It’s the perfect light nonfiction book for young stargazers—and an ideal bedtime book, ending with a giant moon hovering over a sleepy town hunkered down for bed.
Look for all the books in the Peek-Through Picture Book series: Tree, Bee, Ocean, and The Twelve Days of Christmas.

Aside from the moon stages themselves not being in proper order (due to the necessities of die cut ordering), the book also messes up BIG TIME in a number of other ways. It shows Penguins and speaks of the Northern Lights. (Penguins live at the SOUTH Pole.) It shows a new moon high in the night time sky when in fact a new moon is up only during the day. If you are going to have a book about the moon, don't misinform kids. Do some basic research. The publisher should be ashamed. The art is very nice, but as a children's book, this is a 100% fail. Sorry.
