“Breakfast Moon” Live Reading & Activities

October 21, 2020, 11:00 am

12:00 pm

Join the Astronomical Society of the Pacific (ASP) for a live reading of our illustrated children’s storybook, “Breakfast Moon”, which tells the story of Mae and her younger brother, Arthur, looking for the moon in the sky each morning and recording their observations in their Moon Journal. After the reading, we’ll show you how to keep your own Moon Journal so that you and your family can observe the moon together from home.

The reading and activities will be facilitated by Anna Hurst and Theresa Summer, two of the science educators from the ASP who led the creation of “Breakfast Moon”. After the reading, they will be joined by the author, Meg Gower, and the illustrator, David Barker, for a discussion of the process of creating this unique children’s book.

About “Breakfast Moon” – This engaging story encourages children to be scientists by observing the world around them; the illustrations accurately depict the shape and position of the Moon over the course of several days.
