Imagine that you're walking on the moon.
What is it like? For thousands of years people looked up at the moon and wondered about it. Now we what the moon is like. There is no air on the moon and nothing grows, but there are towering mountains and deep craters and much more!
Colder than the desert, the hotter than the desert, the moon is an amazing place to explore.

For kindergarten through second grade students, this excellent book illustrates to students what it is like to be on the moon. I would use this book in the classroom to help students identify the moon parts and the features of the moon. The students can visually take a journey on the moon while reading and flipping through the book and using their imagination.

This book would be perfectly suited for third graders. They learn about what they see each day in the night sky and learn about the moon. A fun activity to do with them together would be to create our own class moon! On that moon we either draw, create objects, or write information on it!This way they get to look at the moon all day, instead of just at night.

36 months - A great starter book for preschoolers who have little knowledge of space, the moon etc. Especially good for kids who enjoy a simple picture book format rather than the typical encyclopedic format with numerous images and bullets filling a page.

I just wish they had actually used a few more photographs instead of primarily illustrations, but maybe they didn't have photographs that portrayed exactly what they wanted to show. Very good at addressing a topic that interests many children.

This book describes the surface of the moon, the climate, the effects of gravity, and the astronauts' experiences on the moon thus far.

Not an actual Shelby County Reads, but goes with the theme very well. The kids get a lot out of it.
