Booklist - 06/01/2019 If the Earth had a best friend, who would it be? Why, the Moon, of course! As in Earth! My First 4.54 Billion Years (2017), McAnulty gently introduces a celestial body by letting it tell its own story. The Moon excitedly explains how “she” came to be and her close relationship with the Earth. She also dispels some myths about herself: a cow has yet to jump over her, despite what nursery rhymes may say. Unafraid to insert specific numerics into the conversational text, this book imparts loads of scientific facts under the guise of a lighthearted autobiography, and the reader can’t help absorbing much along the way. The humorous voice, accompanied by Lewis’ adorable and entertaining digital illustrations, makes learning a breeze. Back matter includes a short author’s note, a game of “Two Truths and a Myth with Moon,” as well as more data, nomenclature, and a list of sources. Perfect for children—and grown-ups—who have questions about the greater universe. - Copyright 2019 Booklist.
