Read free moon poems written by many of today's working children's poets at Irene's "Museum on the Moon" padlet.

The most curious museum on Earth isn't on the earth at all - it's on the moon.

Footprints forever etched in time. A commemorative patch from a tragic flight. Two golf balls, still lodged in frozen dust 238,855 miles away. From the amusing to the poignant, The Museum on the Moon introduces readers to the mysterious objects left on the lunar surface since humans arrived in 1969. Part history, part poetry, heartwarming and haunting, and illustrated with breathtaking graphite drawings, The Museum on the Moon is a moving exhibit of humankind's most famous quest for knowledge and our place in the universe.

"The poetry and facts complement each other and make for a nice flow of information and fun. "A lovely picture book that mixes poetry and history about the moon."
- School Library Journal

"A provocative tally of treasures and trash."
- Kirkus Reviews
