Who Am I?

Kindergarten to 2nd Grade
I have many names. I can be mysterious. People say I’m shy. Sometimes you can see me, sometimes you can’t. I always look right at you, but don’t always show my face. Most people just ignore me, but your life would be very different without me. I’m the Moon! Come learn all about me.
