by Kate Bright

Just Like the Moon is an exploration of the moon and how we all can see ourselves reflected in the different phases. We can’t always shine our brightest. Sometimes we are shy, indecisive, or just not perfect – and that’s okay.

The book encourages everyone to reflect on themselves and understand that we will not always be perfect. The book has a re-pentatonic melody accompanied by ostinati that all fit together on the final page. Can be read in one class period or turned into a unit where students learn the ostinati and create movement to accompany the story.
