Staff Reviews

Take a peek at the nighttime antics of a wide assortment of animals around the world. As you turn each page, the sliver-of-a-moon cut-out slowly, delightfully grows into a full moon, and then cycles back until it is again just a sliver. Even after you know the words by heart, it’s still remarkable to flip through the pages and watch the waxing and waning moon. One of my favorite picture books, now available as a board book for little hands to explore.

I love all of Britta Teckentrup’s peek-through picture books, but this one is my favorite. Her art has almost a collage quality to it that is very unique and the peek-through parts make the book more engaging for little ones. Great for teaching about the phases of the moon or simply for kids who love the night sky. If you enjoy this book, make sure to check out her other ones!



From the popular series that launched with Tree: A Peek-Through Picture Book comes a 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, Moon, and Home.
