Astronomy for Kids 8 to 12
Who is Kenneth Prescott? Ken Prescott is a researcher and amateur astronomer with a passion for astronomy and a desire to teach young children. As a young boy growing up in Chicago, Illinois, he looked at the night sky and wondered where the jewel-like stars came from, what made them twinkle, and why some were brighter than others. During trips outside the city to the countryside, where the sky was darker, more visible, and much more dramatic, it was literally "Heaven," as he saw more stars in the heavens than he could ever count. Learning to distinguish stars from planets with his first telescope, he looked deep into space to glimpse galaxies. As Ken grew older, he found that the best way to satisfy his curiosity about the universe was to study the phenomenon of outer space in school. He took courses in science, astronomy, and physics in college while earning his degree in science. Then he became a researcher, and even today, he continues to learn more about the beauty of far outer space. And, yes, looking at the night sky still gives him goosebumps! Ken's journey to learn about amateur astronomy has been "literally" an "out of the world" experience. He learned so much about the universe and all the "billions and billions" of stars and galaxies out there. He now wants to bring this knowledge to young people so that it is easier for them to understand, especially those ages 8 to 12 years old, Ken's age when he first became interested. His passion is to feed the curiosity of explorers like you and your children, to bring you closer to the beauty of the universe beyond Earth, and pique your interest in learning more!
This book is about astronomy for kids 8 to 12. It covers all the main concepts of astronomy, but in a way that talks to the kids, so they are interested and understand. It is also for the parents, who want to know more so they can teach their children. And the photos will help to introduce some of the complex concepts.
Of course, kids 8 to 12, boys and girls, and even older, and perhaps some could be younger. It is also for the parents, who want to know more so they can teach their children, and even read with them, especially the younger children.
I envision a black background with objects floating in space in white (stars and comets) and color (galaxies). It must be very dramatic, eye-catching, and professional-looking. I want something that stands out that says: “Buy me! Buy me!” or at least “Look at me!” These are my suggestions, but mostly, I want your creative input. Use stock photo images if they help achieve this effect.
