Anita's book!


Here is Anita's book about space.
Have fun!



Book description


Looking up at the sun in the sky it’s hard to imagine that it’s just another one of those stars we see at night. In fact, the whole solar system, the grouping of planets and other bodies revolving around the sun, is pretty amazing. And hard to understand. After all, the world feels huge, how can kids comprehend the sheer size of outer space?

Explore the Solar System! introduces kids ages 6–9 to the planets, moons, and other celestial bodies that surround our star, the sun, as well as the universe beyond. Combining a hands-on element with history and science, kids investigate solar eclipses, phases of the moon, Jupiter’s rings, and what astronauts wear. Who named the stars? What is the Milky Way? Why is there night? While discovering the answers to these questions and more, kids will have lots of fun with activities that range from creating an origami model of the solar system to playing a race-to-the-moon board game. Projects are easy-to-follow, require minimal adult supervision, and use primarily common household products and recycled supplies. By combining a hands-on element with riddles, jokes, fun facts, and comic cartoons, kids Explore the Solar System!, and have a blast along the way.
