Sky Gazing: A Guide to the Moon, Sun, Planets, Stars, Eclipses, and Constellations, illustrated by our very own Hannah Bailey and written by Meg Thacer has won the Best hands-on Science Book category at the AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prize for Excellence in Science Books which celebrates outstanding science writing and illustration for children and young adults. The prize is meant to encourage the writing and publishing of high-quality science books for all age groups.
“A highly visual guide to observing the sky with the naked eye, kids will delve into the science behind what they see, making tours of our solar system and deep space, and information on the formation of the earth’s moon, eclipses, northern lights and meteor showers, all accessible to children aged 9-14. Panelists commented that the book is an accessible introduction to astronomy for kids. It is a good balance of astrological information, age-appropriate activities and focuses on developing the skills needed to complete the activities. This is what a hands-on activity book should be.”
As well a this Skygazing was awarded a 2020 Nautilus award for best YA nonfiction!
High praise indeed and well deserved, congratulations Hannah!
