A collection of verse for young people that celebrates the natural world

This wondrous poetry collection captures eye-popping moments, tender observations and a thousand whimsical reflections on the sheer joy of the natural world. Thought-provoking, sensitive and delightfully original, Cherry Moon poses big questions about life with poems and other small gatherings of words; encouraging children of every age to explore the power, enchantment and sheer wonderfulness of nature.


"Weil's lines land with the elegant profundity of a child's earnest question: "Why does the sun shine?" Her poems shimmer and shake, will elicit joy and whimsy. Cherry Moon is a book to be read out of doors, surrounded with your loved ones, whether human, animal, or plant." —Daegen Miller, author, This Radical Land
