The New York Times called Seymour Simon "the dean of children's science" and this book is proof why. This is a SOLID book for classroom use -- high on moon facts and sharp space imagery, and relatively low on the more cutesy elements that sometimes crow children's science books.
This book answers so many questions that kids
commonly have about the moon (ie: Is there weather on the moon? Is there
sound? Is it always night? Why do astronauts bounce on the moon?...)
From Apollo 11's first landing to the mystery of
moonquakes and the genesis of craters, this stunning introduction to our
nearest neighbor in space describes the moon and its all-important
relationship to Earth. Mesmerizing full-color photography and an
informative text perfect this exciting and educational journey in space. Here are some sample spreads:
