Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-This second update of a 1963 title (Crowell; o.p.) is clearly written and useful. Compared to the 1986 edition (HarperCollins), it has just one textual change: the mention of the discovery of potentially potable water beneath the surface of the moon. Visual differences include a cleaner font, a brighter cover, and watercolor-and-photographic illustrations. Three interesting activities are appended, including making a moon crater with flour, cocoa powder, and a marble.-Ellen Heath, Orchard School, Ridgewood, NJ Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
