Review: The Moon Book

The Moon Book is written and illustrated a "master of children's non-fiction" Gail Gibbons. The Moon Book originally released in 1997 is getting new life with an audiobook edition from Dreamscape Media. Gibbons includes moon facts, history, milestones, and legends. The Moon Book is a brief overview about the moon and is intended for elementary students.

Adolescent Audio Adventures reviews The Moon Book audiobook
Chris Lutkin narrates The Moon Book. This the first book I have hear Lutkin narrate and I enjoyed it. His pace and tone were good. The Moon Book is informational text, so it didn't have emotional moments and Lutkin was very consistent throughout the reading. I would listen to him again.

Dreamscape Media had a bed a music underneath most of the book. There were also sound effects throughout that matched the text - night bugs, a wolf's howl, an alarm bell, space craft beeps and boops, etc. The music varied from string instruments to piano to synthesized sounds. I nice mix, so that listener always has something different to hear. Dreamscape also had the sound byte of Neil Armstrong's famous line - a beautiful sound addition to the audiobook.

Additional CD notes ... The story is 19 minutes in length. The CD is nearly double because the disc includes page turn tracks. Thank you, Dreamscape! There are multiple tracks on the CD for a total of 10 - five for an uninterrupted read and five for a read with page turn indicators. The page turn sound is a subtle sound, but recognizable to the listener.

Reviewed from an Audiobook Jukebox copy. Thank you, Dreamscape Media, LLC!
