Ages 7 to 9 years. Text in Spanish. Max the Dog and a young girl named Tori take the first trip to the Moon since the Apollo era, and their trip proves so inspiring to people back on Earth that all the nations of the world come together to build a great Moon colony. From the colony, the views of Earth make everyone realise how small and precious planet Earth is. Along the way, the story sets the stage for more sophisticated science, featured in the 19 "Big Kid Box" sidebars which cover topics including "Phases of the Moon", "Wings in Space?", and "Frisbees and Curve Balls on the Moon" -- all thoughtfully explained so that grownups and children can learn about science together. Behind-the-scenes science lessons with activities round out this entertaining and educational picture book, which is designed to accompany the new Max Goes to the Moon planetarium show, coming soon to planetariums around the world.
