These are big books with huge photographs and just the right amount of text for little listeners. My boys ages 3 and 4 were fascinated by the close up pictures of the sun and its fiery gases. I learned a few things too! If you get only one book about the sun, make it this one. The books have a ton of pictures with just a sentence or two on the opposite page. Where Does the Sun Go? This is another simple book to help kids understand where the sun goes at night. This book is the story of a fiesty little kitten who sees a bowl of milk in the sky and does everything she can to get it.
The superb black and white illustrations won this book a Caldecott best pictures medal. A favorite at our house! Mooncake , by Frank Asch. Bear wants to taste the moon, so he builds his own rocket. As he starts to blast off, he falls asleep. He scoops up some snow and makes a little mooncake.
A fun story and a favorite of my Four.

Happy Birthday, Moon , by Frank Asch. In this one, he wants to get the moon a birthday present. Through a series of conversations really just his echo coming back , he learns that the moon wants a hat.
A sweet, gentle story. My boys liked it too. Worth finding! This is a pretty lengthy piece of nonfiction for preschoolers, but Branley has a gift for writing nonfiction in a way that keeps your attention. On the Moon , by Anna Milbourne. The Moon , by Thomas K. If your child is not ready for longer nonfiction, this book from Pebble Plus is perfect. The moon has no air or water. The sky is always black.
When a little girl wants the moon, her father is determined to get it for her. He gets a very long ladder and puts it against a tall mountain, but the moon is too big! I would have returned it right back to the library, but my boys loved it of course! The subject matter is a bit harder to grasp than in some of the other Rookie Read-About Science books, but give it a try.
Just Leave Michael Collins Alone
Your preschooler might surprise you. Fowler does it again with another simple, accessible piece of nonfiction for preschoolers. This was one of my faves! The book was too… magical? She wants to talk to the moon, but the moon is just too far away. Finally the girl and her forest friends find a way to connect with the moon. Your preschooler probably will too.
Moon Child , by Nadia Krilanovich. This is a gentle story that would be perfect for bedtime or the end of a school day. Stars , by Thomas K. A very simple, easy-to-follow book about stars for preschoolers. The Big Dipper , by Franklyn Branley. This was my favorite book about stars because of its conversational style. My boys and I learned quite a bit about the Big Dipper. Franklyn Branley never disappoints. Pebble Plus has an Exploring the Galaxy series with a book for each planet.
These are your best bet for individual books about the planets that preschoolers will understand and appreciate. Also check out Venus , Mercury , Saturn , and books for the rest of the planets. How to Catch a Star , by Oliver Jeffers. A little boy loves stars so much he wants one for his very own.
But how will he catch one? We loved the childlike illustrations and the story of a very persistent little boy. The ending is a little confusing, though, when the boy finds a star on the seashore. Is it a starfish?
The ending had us stumped, but the book was a favorite of my Four. Space Walk , by Salina Yoon. I have a deep fear of lift the flap library books, which will probably last until our youngest is out of the book-ripping phase. But I still recommend this informative little book about the planets.

Wyoh and the Professor decide to start a revolution, which Mannie is persuaded to join after Mike calculates that it has a one in seven chance of success. Mannie, Wyoh, and de la Paz thereafter form covert cells , protected by Mike, who adopts the persona of "Adam Selene ", leader of the movement, and communicates by the telephone system. Mannie saves the life of Stuart Rene LaJoie, a rich, well-connected, sympathetic tourist, who begins turning public opinion on Earth in favor of Lunar independence.
Before the planned time to revolt arrives, soldiers who had been brought to quell the mounting unrest rape and kill a local young woman, then kill another who finds her body, and rioting erupts. The Loonies overcome military opposition and overthrow the Warden. When Earth tries to reclaim the colony, the revolutionaries plan to use in defense a smaller duplicate of the electromagnetic catapult used to export wheat. Mike impersonates the Warden in messages to Earth, to give the revolutionaries time to organize their work.
Meanwhile, the Professor sets up an "Ad-Hoc Congress" to distract dissenters. When Earth finally learns the truth, Luna declares its independence on July 4, , the th anniversary of the United States' Declaration of Independence. Mannie and the Professor go to Earth to plead Luna's case, where they are received in Agra by the Federated Nations, and embark on a world tour advertising the benefits of a free Luna, while urging various governments to build a catapult to transfer supplies, especially water, to Luna in exchange for grain.
Their proposals are rejected and they are imprisoned, but they are freed by Stuart LaJoie and returned, with him, to Luna. Public opinion on Earth has become fragmented, while on Luna, the news of Mannie's arrest and the attempt to bribe him with the appointment of himself as Warden have unified the normally fractious Loonies. An election is held in which Mannie, Wyoh, and the Professor are elected possibly by the intervention of Mike.
The Federated Nations on Earth send armies to destroy the Lunar revolution, but these are vanquished, with great loss of life, by the revolutionaries. The rumor is circulated that Mike's alter ego Adam Selene was among those killed, thus removing the need for him to appear in the flesh. When Mike launches rocks at sparsely populated locations on Earth, warnings are released to the press detailing the times and locations of the bombings, but disbelieving people, as well as people on religious pilgrimages, travel to the sites and die.
As a result, public opinion turns against the fledgling nation. A second attack destroys Mike's original catapult, but the Loonies have built a secondary, smaller one in a secret location, and with Mannie acting as its on-site commander, the Loonies continue to attack Earth until it concedes Luna's independence. Professor Bernardo de la Paz, as leader of the nation, proclaims victory to the gathered crowds, but collapses and dies. Mannie takes control, but Wyoh and he eventually withdraw from politics altogether, and find that the new government falls short of their expectations.
When Mannie tries to speak to Mike afterwards, he finds out that the computer has lost its self-awareness and its human-like qualities. The first sixth of the book relates the discussions between the protagonists justifying and plotting the revolution; the next quarter describes the year-long revolution itself. The remainder of the book recounts events occurring in the months after the revolution in May , and a week or so of events in October leading up to capitulation by Earth.
Professor Bernardo de La Paz describes himself as a "Rational Anarchist", a name probably invented in the text itself. The desire for anarchy is balanced by the logic that some form of government is needed, despite its flaws. When challenged by Wyoh, Professor de la Paz replies, "In terms of morals there is no such thing as a 'state'. Just men. Each responsible for his own acts.
