Imagine that you're walking on the moon.

What is it like?
For thousands of years people looked up at the moon and wondered about it. Now we know what the moon is like. There is no air on the moon and nothing grows, but there are towering mountains and deep craters—and much more!

Colder than the desert, the hotter than the desert, the moon is an amazing place to explore.

Whether you see a man or a woman in the moon, this book is a great exploration to help young scientist understand how the world works.

The Moon and the Earth were created around the same time; however, the Moon and the Earth are very different. The Earth has an atmosphere while the Moon does not. The Earth has plenty of gravity while the Moon does not. The Earth also has water, air, dust, and wind while the Moon has none of these things. The Earth is ever changing while the Moon remains the same over the years. Help your child explore their world and its accomplice by reading to them this book. It will talk about how our astronauts have explored the Moon, what they found, and what they did. This book will help your child understand how we have come to know everything (or somethings) about the Moon. This book could be truly inspiring for your child to one day become an astronaut or a scientist.
