Aliana loves observing everything in nature.

When she notices how bright the light of the full moon shines into her room, she spends time learning about the moon and experimenting with light.

As she prepares for her brother's birthday, she plans a wonderful surprise to be revealed with the next full moon.

"Aliana Reaches for the Moon interweaves science and art to tell a beautiful story about a budding young scientist who serves as a wonderful mentor and role model for her younger brother." ~Grace Wolf-Chase, PhD; Astronomer, Adler Planetarium
