Children's Literature
This text, one of a series about science experiments that can be understood and accomplished by youngsters, continues to prove that scientific information on a range of topics doesn't have to be confined to the classroom. The book hooks readers with a beginning section that asks youngsters to think about where the sun and moon go during certain parts of the day; a short historical overview of some mythology connected with the cycles of the sun and moon follows. Next, we are given the scientific story and a series of experiments that readers can conduct; parents or teachers are strongly encouraged to supervise and support their young scientists. Interspersed between the experiments are short narratives used to connect one experiment with the next; these often pose a question or two to pique the reader's interest and encourage interest in the next experiment. The text closes with books, organizations, and online sites that provide additional information about the concept or experiments covered. As with the other books in "The True Book" series, Experiments with the Sun and the Moon is solid in its approach and deserving of a "thumbs up" for providing knowledge in a child-friendly package. 2003, Children's Press/Scholastic, <%ISBN%>0516226053
