Booklist Review

Gr. 2-4. This revised edition of The Moon (1984) features many new photographs and color reproductions. Despite the photos' relatively colorless subjects, this change improves the look of the book overall. In addition to the clearer reproduction of photos, the new layout and the increased use of black background pages add to the design as well. Changes to the text are minor and often reflect the new choice of illustrations. Note that the Dewey classification places the book in 559.9 (earth sciences in extraterrestrial worlds ), rather than on the astronomy shelves. An attractive replacement for the old edition. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2003 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-5-It's time to take your 1984 copy of Simon's The Moon off your shelf and replace it with this shiny new edition. This scientific trek to the moon brought to life by NASA photography has been carried into the 21st century through advancements in imaging technology. Although the first edition's black-and-white photographs taken from space and on the Moon were impressive for their time, the digitally remastered color photographs in this update are incredible. Set on black backgrounds and complemented by white text, the images transport readers into space. The text has undergone minimal change, only veering from Simon's exact wording when introducing new pictures or tidbits of information that may not have been available at the time of the first printing. The facts remain true and relevant, and the writing reflects the graphics: beautiful. This is a must-have for astronomy sections.-Jenna Gould, Alachua County Library District, Gainesville, FL (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
