All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

It emphasizes dealing with adversity, building self-confidence, and understanding the phases of the moon.

The "For Creative Minds" section explains the phases of the moon and helps to answer those pesky questions like "why is the moon up during the day," or "why does the shape of the moon change?" Moon crafts and games supplement the understanding. "How the Moon Regained Her Shape" is a Book Sense Summer Reads Pick as well as an Accelerated Reader title.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2006 Fall)
Bullied by the sun, the once cheerful moon dwindles until helped by numerous women. Both the folktale-like story and the art are clearly influenced by Native American culture. The mixed-media illustrations are attractive if pallid, but the weak story seems written merely as an excuse for the appended information about the moon, Native Americans, and bullying.
