Just in time for the Holiday Gifting Season comes a fabulous kid's book called "How the Meteorite got to the Museum" by Jessie Hartland.
"This science-as-entertainment book chronicles how a meteorite ended up in the American Museum of Natural History, detailing the steps that brought it from outer space, across the eastern US, to the roof of a car in Peekskill, New York, and thereafter to be verified, tested, and exhibited in the hallowed halls of the AMNH. Hartland describes the space rock's path by showing how it connected to people-e.g., fans at a football game noticed it, the police attributed its crash to vandals, firefighters cooled it off, etc."
Author: Jessie Hartland is an illustrator, cartoonist, artist, packaging and window display designer with an illustrious worldwide clientele. Among her many acclaimed non-fiction picture books are How the Meteorite Got to the Museum's predecessors How the Dinosaur Got to the Museum and How the Sphinx Got to the Museum.
...look for it at the beginning of October (around the 8th)!
