" I loved the concept, but the tempo was very awkward. " said.

" Possibly a smidge too long for storytime, but cute. Shows different animals at night in different environments (forest, desert, arctic, jungle, beach ocean, fields, mountains, etc.) all with the moon growing to full and then back to a new moon. " said.

" Another beautifully illustrated book by Britta Teckentrup. Really liked the way she presented the moon phases through the cut-outs and also the fact that she focuses on the particularities of the night life of animals. The only minus point for me was the text. " said.

" This is a lovely little book, with amazing illustrations. Great opportunity to talk to children about different animals, their habitats, and the cycle of the moon when doing space. It’s also a lovely picture book with a peep through of the moon on every page, changing through the cycle. " said.

" I love Britta Teckentrup books! This book is perfect for a bedtime story, with it's dreamy rhyming lines like, "Have you ever wondered whyThe moon shines in the nighttime sky?"to it's illustrations of the waxing and waning moon. Teckentrup's artwork is beautiful, detailed, and engaging! Can't recommend this book enough. " said.

" This is Teckentrup's third peek-through picture book. Tree and Bee precede this one. Moon is gorgeous and cleverly presents the phases of moon though the use of her cut out technique. The rhymer verse supporting the illustrations actually reveal how animal life in different habitats have behaviors influence the phases of the moon. Very nice book to add to a classroom collection. " said.

"Ok, so , I was really excited to read this little picture book. I love to collect them, and I thought this one would explain why the moon does what the moon does. What it changes shapes and why it's there, but it explained absolutely nothing?? It just showed the nighttime sky for all kinds of different animals, and that was really great. The story was really fun, the illustrations beautiful, but it just doesn't deliver what's on the tin. I'm glad to have added this one to the collection, but I won't be seeing this as nonfiction for small children, as this is just a fun story and that's it. " said.

"Although I didn't love this picture book quite as much as its predecessors, Tree and Bee, because this one relies on a more somber palette, I did enjoy how each page reveals the moon's various phases through various die-cuts. The author uses evocative language as she asks readers what they've noticed about the night sky and the ever-changing moon that brightens the dark. Each double-page spreads features different animals gathered beneath the moon, going about their business, while the moon shines on, changing each night as it relentlessly follows its cycle, one of the delights in our world. Originally published in the United Kingdom, the book might provide a useful introduction to the moon although teachers, parents or caregivers would need to follow up a shared reading with some explanations as to why the moon seems to change all the time. " said.
