Dr. E.C. Krupp and Robin Rector Krupp have worked together on The Comet and You (Macmillan), the first children's book to receive the American Institue of Physics Science-Writing Award; The Big Dipper and You (Mulberry), an Outstanding Science Trade Book for Children' and, most recently, The Moon and You (Mulberry). Dr. Krupp is the Director of the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles and an expert on ancient and prehistoric astronomy.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-5-An overview of our closest neighbor. The narrative text flows from one page to the next without chapter or section headings, and there is no index. These are not drawbacks, however, as the book is intended to be read from cover to cover rather than to be used as a reference source. Physical characteristics, the 1969 landing, and theories of origin are described, and the moon's phases are well explained and illustrated. Krupp discusses the ways ancient peoples viewed the celestial body, and a section on the "Man in the Moon" details various cultures' perceptions of its inhabitants. The black-and-white, double-page illustrations are rendered in pencil. There are a few pages on which the print is black on a textured black-and-white background, but only one of them is difficult to read. All libraries needing information on the moon would find this a useful purchase.
