More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
In this book about the moon, the cover shows an American astronaut on the moon saluting the American flag. Readers will learn about the phases of the moon, its size, its rotation, and how the moon impacts the Earth by controlling the tides. The moon’s creation is still a subject of debate, but the book notes that generally accepted explanation is that it was created from debris when a Mars-sized object hit Earth and threw debris into space, coalescing into the moon. A few facts about astronomers going back to the Greeks and a possible future for living on the moon bring the story up to date. Inflatable test labs will be sent to the International Space Station in 2015 for testing to see if they will work on the moon. The answer to the questions posed at the beginning of the book follows the “True Statistics” section and even the back cover contains some interesting information. The book’s generous full color photographs and illustrations help easily explain the facts. The books in this “New True Books: Space” series about the planets and Earth’s moon offer an enticing format. The first page challenges readers to find out which of two statements is true. There is an arrow that contains the text: “Find the answers in this book.” To help young readers appreciate the format of more substantial books for older readers, this contains a content spread that lists each chapter heading followed by an intriguing question. There are also references to the back matter containing true statistics, resources, important words, an index and a brief blurb about the author. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot; Ages 8 to 10.
