Big Book

The Year of the Tortoise has delivered another surprise: the gift of writing a short children's book on astronomy. A "Big Book" is designed to be read aloud to the class; and ours is to cover 5 areas: Earth, Moon, Sun, planets, and stars.
Did YOU know that the Moon rotates about its own axis? - or that we see Venus as the Morning OR Evening "star" but not both at once? 
The whole project is filled with God-incidence and "wow" moments... But they must wait til another day. In the meantime, may I challenge you to step outside and look up at the stars?
