Children's Book - Max Goes to Jupiter (Second Edition): A Science Adventure with Max the Dog

Children’s Book – Max Goes to Jupiter (Second Edition): A Science Adventure with Max the Dog

by: Jeffrey Bennett, expert astrophysicist and educator and Nick Schneider & Erica Ellingson

Here are some cool tips that kids will learn in the book that were shared with me:

  • How to find Jupiter in the night sky
  • The importance of Galileo’s discovery of moons around Jupiter
  • Why spaceships can’t land on Jupiter
  • The missions to Jupiter (Juno Mission, which is in space now, ends July 2018, unless extended!)
  • The possibility of a future “space elevator”
  • What the ocean is like on Europa, one of Jupiter’s moons and could there be life?

Anthony’s Review (age 10):

Anthony thought it was a lot of fun learning about how a rocket works and orbits. He also learned a lot about Jupiter and was shocked to realize just how large our Universe really is in size!

Let’s learn some facts about Jupiter!

New Children’s Book – The Backup Bunny

New Children's Book - The Backup Bunny

The Backup Bunny

By: Abigail Rayner

Let me start by saying one word – Precious! Anthony is 10 and he still has his ‘Bear Bear’. All kids have their favorite stuffie or blankie so this story is relatable even to the oldest child who hears this story. We even laughed a bit in parts of this book.

When Max loses his favorite toy—Bunny—his clever mom brings out the “backup bunny”—Fluffy—to save the day. Fluffy is thrilled to have the chance to play with Max, but is soon rejected by the observant child who notices that his ears are too new and perky. Can Fluffy find a way into his favorite boy’s heart?

 

Find the Backup Bunny on Amazon and Simon & Schuster books.
