Whee! Today, If You Were the Moon comes out! I am so excited to know that this book is out in the world now (floating above the world?).
I am so tickled to have collaborated on this beautiful book with Jaime Kim, editor Carol Hinz, and many behind-the-scenes people at Lerner. It’s a genre-bending work of poetry and science and art in a picture book package. I hope you like it!
You can find more info and extras here. And if If You Were the Moon looks good, perhaps you’ll consider checking it out at your library or ordering it from your favorite indie bookshop or Amazon. Thanks!
I preordered your new book when you last highlighted it on your blog several months ago. You can imagine my surprise when the UPS man delivers my Amazon box. Ta Da! I LOVE your new book!! I can’t wait to share it with kids and teachers!!
Happy Book Birthday! I can’t wait to read it!
I’ve received mine, too, Laura! It is a wonder of a book to add to all your others! Congratulations!

Congratulations Laura. Love the cover and can’t wait to visit the entire book. Storms will probably prevent my view of the moon when I go for the morning paper tomorrow, but I’ll know approximately where it should be and think of you then listen for my favorite morning owl.
