    I was young when America landed on the Moon and mankind made that enormous step onto the surface of the round orb that has lit our nights and been a mystery to man It hasn t lost its fascination to people today, and recounting those major steps of space exploration and achievement never grow old Nor does this old knowledge acquired pale into insignificance with each new discovery.We delight in knowledge We delight in knowing our closest astro neighbor We delight in discovery.The book Luna t I was young when America landed on the Moon and mankind made that enormous step onto the surface of the round orb that has lit our nights and been a mystery to man It hasn t lost its fascination to people today, and recounting those major steps of space exploration and achievement never grow old Nor does this old knowledge acquired pale into insignificance with each new discovery.We delight in knowledge We delight in knowing our closest astro neighbor We delight in discovery.The book Luna takes knowledge and exploration in a new and different direction for young readers and is designed to fascinate.The science that we know is incorporated with the ageless or timeless stories that pervade literary history Beginning with the ancients and others who worshiped the moon, there are stories, fables, myths, folklore, beliefs focused on the moon Luna The Science and Stories of Our Moon doesn t mix them up or muddy the Luna scape It just presents information, history, science, and also the stories.Keep in mind that as with most National Geographic publications an old Earth is assumed or the books are predicated on that assumption or belief As one who doesn t hold to the old Earth idea, I can still enjoy, appreciate, and learn from this fine publication.DISCLOSURE I received a complimentary copy to facilitate this review Opinions are mine, alone and are freely given
