A girl and her grandfather’s shared love for the moon brings them comfort and keeps them close even when they’re apart
Eleanor is born during a brilliant harvest moon. Moments after her birth, while she lies safely in her grandfather’s arms, he tells her, “No matter where we are, we will always share the moon.”
And they do. As Eleanor grows, her grandpa teaches her to love the moon. Together they observe it in all its permutations as it waxes and wanes. Soon, Eleanor sees the moon in everything, and when she and her parents move away, these moon sightings give her comfort and make her feel like her grandfather is close by.
A debut picture book from author/illustrator Maggie Knaus, Eleanor’s Moon is a charming and cozy story that assures children a loved one can always be connected to them, even when they’re apart.

"The illustrations, made up of vivid, flat colors (especially lovely during scenes set at night), are appealing; kids will especially enjoy picking out moon shapes on pages where Eleanor is reminded of Grandpa."- Kirkus Reviews
