Let the wonders of the moon come aglow in this charming, delightful and most informative book. With the help of interactive three-dimensional "pop-ups" and mechanisms to illustrate each point readers will learn about the moon; each spread has numerous tabs, cards, diagrams, which pop-up, turn, rotate, glow in the dark, or can be taken out of the book. As popular children's books like Goodnight Moon and the enthusiasm that greets each lunar eclipse have shown, the constantly changing moon never fails to fascinate. Its folklore, its place in space research, its scientific effects on the earth, and its charm are presented in seven spreads packed with special features that will educate and delight children and adults alike. Superb paper engineering includes: * a wheel to demonstrate the waxing and waning of the moon * a spinning moon pop to show how the moon goes around the earth * a mechanism that calculates the phases of the moon * a pop-up of a lunar eclipse * an interactive element showing the relative scale of and distances between the sun, moon, and earth * a moon globe that can come out of the book * a lunar base pop-up (futuristic) from NASA * a "phase checker" to spot each day's moon phase
