A full-color nonfiction picture book to introduce kids ages 5 through 8 to our closest cosmic neighbor–the moon!
The moon is one of the smaller celestial objects in the universe, but it has some very important jobs. Without it, Earth would be a very different place!
In The Moon: Small-but-Mighty Neighbor, kids ages 5 to 8 learn how the moon formed, how it keeps the Earth steady, and why it has no life beyond rare visits from humans. Narrated by the character of the Universe, this story offers up clearly stated scientific explanations designed to gets kids excited about astronomy, covering topics such as the moon’s phases, eclipses, and humans’ long history of watching the moon. A hands-on project, glossary, and a poem offer more opportunities for learning and language connections, while two alien commentators make the whole package delightful and hilarious.
Perfect as a read aloud or for beginner readers, with a glossary to support language development.
