A Full Moon is Rising by Marilyn Singer

As a fan of Marily Singer, especially MIRROR MIRROR : A BOOK OF REVERSIBLE VERSE I am not surprised to find that I loved A FULL MOON IS RISING.  So much so that not only did I read the book a few times I also listened to Marilyn Singer read her poems aloud.  What a treat.  The illustrations by Julie Cairns are bright and colorful and meld well with the poetry.  After finishing the book I felt like I had traveled the world.  Recommended for libraries needing to spruce up their poetry sections and for readers interested in the moon and/or for multil-cultural collections. A gem of a book.

Read as an ebook arc courtesy of Lee & Low books via Netgalley. A FULL MOON IS RISING is now available.
