I am a second grade teacher and this book enriched our textbook wonderfully. The illustrations and text were easy for the children to understand (and even taught me a few things as well!) We read several of Franklyn M. Branley's books during our year, but this one seems to be a class favorite.

It really helps the young inquiring mind learn about the moon. My almost 5 year old always wants this read. Also it tells you how to do a demonstration to show younger kids why the moon looks the way it does, why it changes. I'm glad we got this book!

This is an awesome book that can be used in the classroom when studying space, planets, and the solar system. As a huge object in the sky, the moon sparks a lot of curiosity and this book helps children understand more about it.

Format: Paperback
This is by far the best short treatment I've read on moon phases for kids. The illustrations and explanations are clear and understandable, and my five -year-old is able to "wrap his brain around" the idea of the moon rotating around the earth rotating around the sun...not the most intuitive concept around. In most other similar books I've looked at, they seem to assume you can already picture it in your head...this one adds the viewers' perspective in addition to the plantet's. Very helpful.

Format: Paperback
This is one of the best science readers I have ever encountered. At stage 2, it is perfect for a first or second grader, and it is interesting all the way through to adults. The illustrations are excellent and the text is clear. The book includes an experiment for your kids to do, about the phases of the moon. It's a great, simple experiment and I think we've done it four or five times. It's just a superb book.

What a great book! My boys are 3 and 4, and though we've had discussions about the moon and orbits I know this will help clarify things. One of the best parts of parenting is re-experiencing the wonder of discovery. This series is great for assuaging the beautiful curiosity of young minds. We will be buying many more I'm sure!

I purchased this book to go along with a moon/sun science lesson. It is a cute book with some good, interesting information, but it did not work for the purpose of reading aloud to the kids. I let the kids look at it one at a time, but I used something different for reading aloud. Still a good book for the money.

We own numerous of these Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science books. It is a wonderful series to teach young kids about science and our world. This book fully lived up to my expectations. I even learned a few things about the phases of the moon myself! I highly recommend this book (and the series).
