9780064451857: What the Moon is Like (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science, Stage 2)

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 know 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.

About the Author:

Franklyn M. Branley was the originator of the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series and the author of close to 150 popular books about scientific topics for young readers of all ages. He was Astronomer Emeritus and former Chairman of the American Museum of Natural History-Hayden Planetarium.



True Kelley has illustrated many favorite books for children in her fun-filled watercolor style, including several in the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series. She and the author previously collaborated on What Makes a Magnet? and What the Moon is Like?

True Kelley lives in Warner, New Hampshire.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3-This second update of a 1963 title (Crowell; o.p.) is clearly written and useful. Compared to the 1986 edition (HarperCollins), it has just one textual change: the mention of the discovery of potentially potable water beneath the surface of the moon. Visual differences include a cleaner font, a brighter cover, and watercolor-and-photographic illustrations. Three interesting activities are appended, including making a moon crater with flour, cocoa powder, and a marble.
