4th- 6th grades
Thimmesh used amazing pictures in this book. I thought that every one of them was beautiful and so interesting on each page. She used pictures that went along with the text that she was talking about and all of them were actual photographs. The text in this book was a little larger, but the pages were still full of it. Some of the words were a little extensive so for younger students this would be a good book for a teacher to read because it is very factual and interesting. I liked how she had actual photos of the moon and talked about real problems that they were facing at that time. Any child interested in going to the moon or being an astronaut would really enjoy this book.

After reading this book I would do a unit on the moon. I would have each student find out as much information on the moon and also have them create a moon using whatever supplies they wanted to. When I say create a moon I mean not just draw one on a piece of paper I want a 3D version. I would have them present each of their moons and facts that they found at the end of the unit
