Overview

Through the centuries people have measured time by the phases of the moon. From January’s Wolf Moon to June’s Honey Moon, and from September’s Harvest Moon to December’s Long-Night Moon, Joanne Taylor introduces the names of each full moon in a gentle narrative that follows the rhythms of a farm family’s life. Folklore and real life blend in a beautiful new book about the seasons. The lyrical text is perfectly complemented by Susan Tooke’s gorgeous paintings.
