“Lisa has ‘shot another rocket’ for astronomy and science education. This facts of the universe book will thrill the astronaut in all of us ages 5-105. What a blast to read and learn!” ―Richard Close, former director of student and teacher outreach, Delaware Valley Science Fairs
“While Lisa’s first book, Our Solar System, is an educational journey through our solar system, The Fascinating Space Book for Kids, is more of an encyclopedia of interesting and exciting facts. Students will learn new words like Bennu and Dudu as well as new meanings for familiar words like Maria and Terminator. Or perhaps you will want to know the difference between a constellation and an asterism, or whether wormholes really exist. The Fascinating Space Book for Kids will quickly become the go-to book (for the whole family) for factual information about our universe and beyond.” ―Harry Anselmo, retired middle school science teacher and board member of Montgomery County (PA) Science Teachers Association
From the Publisher
Kids will uncover incredible facts like:
Ancient astronomers from thousands of years ago tracked the movement of the stars to help them navigate, know when to plant and harvest crops, and track the changing seasons.
Earth’s atmosphere, like wearing sunglasses, makes things look a different color. For example, the Sun looks yellow to us, even though it is white.
Neptune has five rings, all named after astronomers who made discoveries associated with the planet: Galle, Le Verrier, Lassell, Arago, and Adams.
