The Moon is a Silver Pond

A picture book by Sara Cassidy and Josée Bisaillon.

Sara Cassidy, illustrated by Josée Bisaillon

A young child skates, bakes and milks the cow while the moon wondrously transforms above. The moon is a silver pond when seen through the trees. When they tend the cow, the moon is the milk at the bottom of the pail.

With stunning illustrations by Josée Bisaillon, 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. (From Orca Book Publishers)

The Moon is a Silver Pond is available in Sept. 2019.
