Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-5-It's time to take your 1984 copy of Simon's The Moon off your shelf and replace it with this shiny new edition. This scientific trek to the moon brought to life by NASA photography has been carried into the 21st century through advancements in imaging technology. Although the first edition's black-and-white photographs taken from space and on the Moon were impressive for their time, the digitally remastered color photographs in this update are incredible. Set on black backgrounds and complemented by white text, the images transport readers into space. The text has undergone minimal change, only veering from Simon's exact wording when introducing new pictures or tidbits of information that may not have been available at the time of the first printing. The facts remain true and relevant, and the writing reflects the graphics: beautiful. This is a must-have for astronomy sections.

From Booklist

Gr. 2-4. This revised edition of The Moon (1984) features many new photographs and color reproductions. Despite the photos' relatively colorless subjects, this change improves the look of the book overall. In addition to the clearer reproduction of photos, the new layout and the increased use of black background pages add to the design as well. Changes to the text are minor and often reflect the new choice of illustrations. Note that the Dewey classification places the book in 559.9 ("earth sciences in extraterrestrial worlds"), rather than on the astronomy shelves. An attractive replacement for the old edition.

I like this book for my toddler who is obsessed with the moon. I read this book aloud to my daughter while my husband was in the room. I thought it was great until the very last page. I can't remember the exact words, but it talks about the moon being dead. I wish it ended on a positive note. My husband and I both had the same reaction to the last page.

Writing a GOOD nonfiction book for children is a daunting mission, but Seymour Simon has conquered the task! 'The Moon' is clearly written, and gives and amazing amount of information in an easy to understand sort of way. The text is white on a black backround and causes the reader to focus on the pictures while reading the book. I am so impressed with the clear delivery of information blended with the incredible pictures that I am going to purchase more of Seymour Simon's work.

Bought the book for my 18 month old grand daughter. She loves the moon, everynight we go out and look for it. This book is great for nights when its raining. She also likes to look at the pictures. The price of the book was very reasonable and arrived on time.

Only 4 stars because the pages stuck together like there was some humidity damage. Since its for my toddler to obsess over I don't care.
