Kirkus Praises Upcoming If You Were the Moon, Written by Laura Purdie Salas and Illus. by Jaime Kim

November 23, 2016

Coming out in March 2017, If You Were the Moon, written by Laura Purdie Salas and illustrated by Jaime Kim, is a poetic and scientific exploration of all the things the moon does for the Earth and for humans. To ensure accuracy, it was even reviewed by a real astrophysicist! In their review, Kirkus called If You Were the Moon “inventive and spirited.” They write of Jaime’s art that, “Each illustration is tinged with starlight, making the book a pleasant nighttime read,” and conclude that, “Salas and Kim provide a great addition to a nighttime-window reading shelf and/or early-science classroom.”
