"So, when you close your eyes at night, Tbe moon reflects the sun's soft light. Shining down with a silvery glow, As we dream our dreams in the world below.

As usual buku nya britta teckentrup selalu bikin breathtaking, dari segi gambarnya seriusan bagus-bagus banget, karya seni banget lah. Begitu pula dengan bahasa puitis dari patricia hegarty di dalamnya.

Dengan ilustrasi dan bahasa yang puitis, buku ini seolah kaya ngajakin kita berpetualang berkeliling dari timur ke barat dann utara ke selatan untuk menikmati bulan dengan ditemani hewan dan alam yang berbeda-beda di setiap bentuk bulannya, dimana hewan maupun alam sama-sama terperangkap oleh indahnya bulan dengan cahayanya...namun kenyataannya terus terang buku ini jg berhasil membuat siapa yang membacanya terperangkap oleh indahnya bulan di dalam buku ini.

Terus cocokah buat anak-anak .. Cocok lah secara ini buku buat anak2

" Beautiful simplicity. This makes me want to read more of Britta Teckentrap's books. " said.

" Although the text leaves a bit to be desired, this book is worth reading because of the beautiful illustrations. Children will enjoy watching the moon wax and wane through the peek-a-boo cut-out. " said.

" Throughout the book although it tells you about what animals do throughout the night it is also describing the moons cycle. " said.

" Weer prachtige illustraties en mooi op rijm. " 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.

"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.

Moon is a peek through picture book for young readers. Books that are cut out or able to see through are relatively modern and unusual. What was interesting about this picture book was the cutouts of the moons were different phases of the moon. It showed the different phases of the moon depending on the location. It also showed animal's responses to the moon such as the light of a moon guiding a bird through the night. It also briefly discusses the tides moving from the moon which could be the start of a lesson about tides.
All of the backgrounds were black or blue, resembling a night sky. The only pictures on each page were the bright moons and the animals. Some of the animals are all black and Teckentrup uses shadows which would be prevalent at night. I liked this book and it could be beneficial to read to children during a lesson on seasons or the moon and the effects of it. It could also be a lesson about animals in different parts of the world with the varying climates. All in all it was a simple and short book that was modern and a good read.
