Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With 300 fabulous images, 50 fantastic projects, and lots of fascinating scientific information, this is simply the most out-of-this world introduction to astronomy a child can have.

"An excellent introduction to astronomy...outstanding background information ...Spectacular color photos and other graphics, useful charts, and graphs augment the text."--School Library Journal, starred review

What are stars? Why does the moon change shape? Budding astronomers will find answers to all their questions about the night sky--and far more--in these 50 eye-opening activities. Three-hundred color photos and illustrations, some from NASA's magnificent collection, help kids soar out into the solar system and get their bearings among the stars. Youngsters will learn to use binoculars and telescopes, and how to chart their viewing highlights in a stargazing notebook. A photographic trip to the moon will inspire kids to map its many phases, calculate a person's lunar weight, and find out what happens during an eclipse. Voyaging farther out also reveals why the other planets wouldn't make a good home for humans, and will help children understand why Earth is avery special place. A Selection of the Children's Book-of-the-Month Club and the Scholastic Book Club.

Synopsis:

With 300 fabulous images, 50 fantastic projects, and lots of fascinating scientific information, this is simply the most out-of-this world introduction to astronomy a child can have. Full color.
