Ada and the Galaxies
Author: Alan Lightman and Olga Pastuchiv
Stargazers rejoice! Renowned physicist Alan Lightman and collaborators, with help from the Hubble telescope, light up the night sky. A dazzling picture book from MIT Kids Press.
There is so much for Ada to do while visiting her grandparents on an island in Maine, but no amount of beachcombing and kayaking during the day can take the place of looking at the bright and beautiful stars at night. She can hardly wait for the sun to set, but will a thick fog spoil her stargazing plans?
Photographs taken from the Hubble telescope are seamlessly layered with charming illustrations to beautifully bring to life this enchanting story of a curious child and her caring grandfather, who share a love for our incredible night sky and the mysteries it holds.
