A dream­like study in con­trasts, Laura Pur­die Salas gives the moon a play­ful per­son­al­ity while pro­vid­ing in­trigu­ing sci­en­tific and cul­tural facts in If You Were the Moon. Adding to the sur­real qual­ity, Jaime Kim’s gouache wa­ter­me­dia and acrylics light up the dark night sky with de­pic­tions of the benev­o­lently glow­ing ce­les­tial body. An ex­cep­tional in­tro­duc­tion to as­tron­omy or a tran­quil bed­time story, it all be­gins with one child’s won­der at the moon shin­ing through a bed­room win­dow.
