The Moon Is a Silver Pond

Written by Sara Cassidy and illustrated by Josee Bisaillon

Published by Orca Book Publisher

Publisher's Summary

A young child skates, bakes, and milks the cow while the moon wondrously transforms above. When they walk through the woods with their skates, the moon is a frozen pond. When they tend the cow, the moon is the milk at the bottom of the pail. Stunning illustrations by Josée Bisaillon capture how imagination shapes the environment around us. This simple board book shows children that the way they see the world--by heart, mind and imagination--is just right. Reveling in metaphor, The Moon Is a Silver Pond encourages that magical leap of imagination and asks the reader to look at everyday objects from a different perspective. Watch for the follow-up, The Sun Is a Peach, in spring 2020.
