Publisher's Description

In this brilliantly simple book, a noted science writer shows the interconnectedness of life on Earth to space--and thus, why space matters to all of us.

Covering topics like stardust, animal navigation, weather, seasons, tides, and more, Colin Stuart shows the interconnectedness of life on Earth and space. The Sun and Moon play an integral role in the water cycle and the tides, and the Moon dictates whether we have chilly winters or sultry summers.

Contains a quiz, further reading, glossary, and index

Filled with surprising facts--such as the fact that humans are made of stardust!--this book presents information in an engaging, personable way. It's great for science lovers and will make science lovers out of all who read it.

Perfect for Common Core classroom connections!
