Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
Close-ups of the moon's surface, and clear, inviting photographs of the moon in different phases add visual interest to the brief text. Large print and simple sentences make this suitable for children who are just learning to read. They will discover several facts about the moon: that it reflects the light of the sun; that it moves around the earth; how the moon's craters were formed; and other important facts. According to the Note to Parents and Teachers, this series "supports national science standards related to earth science." Roger D. Launius, PhD, who is Chair, Division of Space History at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum, is the series' consultant. Part of the "Exploring the Galaxy" series, this will be popular with primary grade students. In addition to a Glossary, there is also an Index, a brief bibliography, and Internet sites accessed through FactHound. This series might also be useful for ESOL students who are just learning to read English.
