Almost 40 years since the first Lunar Landing…

Hard to believe, but July 20, 2009 will mark the 40th anniversary of the first Lunar Landing.  To celebrate that event, Stewart Ross has a new book,  MOON: Science, History, and Mystery (Scholastic). The book is handsomely designed with appealing photos and graphics that accompany Ross’ wide range of topics that include how the moon has touched our culture (i.e, moon music, the moon in movies, Moonlit love),  as well as specific information about the preparation of Apollo 11.  I’m always alittle surprised by how uninterested kids seem to be about the lunar landing…and how toy  makers always say that “space ship” toys appeal more to the dads than to their kids.  I guess it comes under the heading of generational experiences.
