Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The moon is forever a fascination with young children, but it is also a big mystery. This book will help clear up the simple questions asked by most. Using uncomplicated language and colorful photographs, this book details the moon's many interesting characteristics. The reader will marvel at the distance from the earth to the moon—a half a year's drive! Vocabulary will empower the young scientist: orbit, solar system, crescent, and crater. And, descriptions of a moonwalk will inspire the future astronaut: bouncing, jumping, weightless. All of this information is accompanied by startling photographs and intriguing captions. The book is designed for the young listener, but the reading level is for those beginner readers ready for a challenge. Interesting font is used for descriptive words such as "rocky," "smaller," "wide," and "deep." The font, alone, may be helpful in the reader's attempts at decoding. This is a great book for a preschool or kindergarten class! A table of context, index, and glossary are included. This is part of the "Starters" series. 2004, Smart Apple Media, Ages 3 to 6.
