There are lots of science-y picture books these days that simultaneously try to teach you things and keep you entertained, but they're mostly terribly illustrated and not actually engaging at all. This is not the case with "If You Had Your Birthday Party on the Moon"! These are some high-quality illustrations, and even though it's jam packed with facts and there really isn't much of a story, the birthday party theme keeps things tied together, interesting, and upbeat. Will you want to read this a hundred times? Probably not, but it's a great sciency read that you'll want to read more than once and perfect book for older kids to peruse on their own, stopping for the additional fact boxes and all.
