A Full Moon is Rising by Marilyn Singer and Julia CairnsA Full Moon is Rising by Marilyn Singer and Julia Cairns

In a series of short poems the reader is taken around the world to see how children in many cultures celebrate the full moon.

The text is slightly disjointed if the reader is expecting a story with a beginning, middle and end, but taken one poem at a time there is a pleasantness in the vistas explored.

The artwork is colorful, evoking a Grandma Moses-like naive quality.

The book was a quick read and I enjoyed seeing how the different cultures were portrayed.

I recommend this title to people with children who they want to start a dialogue with about either full moon celebrations or other cultures.

Note: I received an ARC copy of  A Full Moon is Rising by Marilyn Singer and Julia Cairns through NetGalley.
