What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“When I was a kid, there were space books and there were activity books. I was a fan of both but would have absolutely loved a space AND activity book like this.”
—Fraser Cain, publisher of Universe Today and cohost of Astronomy Cast
“The best thing I can say about this superbly crafted book is that I wish it had been available when my three children were growing up. While it’s a children’s book, parents and teachers will learn as much from its lessons, photographs, and illustrations as the youngsters.”
—Forrest Mims III, author and one of Discover magazine’s “50 Best Brains in Science”
“Aurora Lipper demonstrates her educational prowess in Astronomy Activity Book for Kids by providing a resource that not only engages the reader but provides easily understandable astronomy facts on every page. This book serves as an invaluable travel guide to children as they explore the universe in which they live.” ­
—Brian P. Cox, educator, amateur astronomer, and Central Coast Astronomical Society board member
“The stars, the moon, galaxies, comets, and glowing nebulae are fascinating enough. When your guide, like Aurora, is also excited and enthusiastic (and knowledgeable), wandering around the heavens is all that much better. Jump in on this adventure and enjoy the ride.”
—Alex McConahay, teacher and Astronomical League Master Observer
“To a child who has expressed an interest in learning about any of the astronomical objects, this activity book fits the bill. Each page has interesting facts about our solar system and objects in deep space followed by a puzzle, game, or activity. The author’s many years of teaching science to the younger generation comes through vividly throughout the book. By having the reader be an active participant, the author makes learning about astronomy a unique and enjoyable experience.”  
—Dr. Lee Coombs, astro-photographer and professor emeritus of chemistry, California Polytechnic State University
