Where Does the Man In The Moon Go During the Day?
Written and illustrated by Jared Jackson

Have you ever wondered where the Man In The Moon goes during the day? From the time Mr. Sun rises in the morning, until he sets in the evening, the Man In The Moon is nowhere to be seen. If we can’t see Moon in the sky, does that mean he’s no longer there? Is he spending time with his friends, playing sports, doing chores, making music in a band, or maybe traveling the world? Where does the Man In The Moon go all day?
