These books are a MUST for every classroom teacher (preschool through college!) who teaches anything about science, and a MUST for any child who is curious about space. Children and adults alike will fall in love with Max and learn so much from the book. I read "Max Goes to the Moon" to all three of my science classes when we were learning about gravity, the Moon, and Space. I read them the fictional story first, and then referred to the nonfiction text boxes for several weeks as we did various activities. So many of my students' initial questions about the Moon, Earth, and gravity were clearly and thoroughly answered with this book. The students referenced the book for their final oral presentations on gravity more than they did any other resource.
My only wish is that Dr. Bennett would write more of these types of interesting, informative books on every science topic I teach!
