Moon PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Moon free pdf Moon is a clear introduction to the fascinating science of Earth's moon and also a delightful romp in the company of a charming cat and his firefly friend. Steve Tomecek's science expertise shines on each page as he carefully accustoms readers to new concepts while holding their attentions through a lively presentation of fun facts. Liisa Chauncy Guida's exuberant colors and careful detail capture the moon for both the scientists and the dreamers.

Learn how the moon interacts with the sun, how it appears to change in our sky, and how it shines. Find out about humans' first trip to the moon and what we found there. Learn about moon craters, moon dust, and moon bouncing. Humans have always been fascinated by the moon that shines bright above, from imagining a man in the moon to sending men to the moon. Tomecek observes how the moon has helped us think of our own planet: "Over the years, scientists have discovered many facts about our moon. In a way, the moon is like our companion in space. We don't go anywhere without it. When the Apollo astronauts stood on the surface of the moon and looked back at the Earth, they said that it made them realize just how special our planet is."

Like the other Jump Into Science books, Moon presents carefully leveled scientific information in a picture book format with a visual character guide who helps readers understand the more challenging information. A do-it-yourself experiment at the end of the book shows young scientists how to make craters and understand more clearly how they formed on the moon.
