Solstice and the (almost) full moon

As the shortest day of the year turns from daylight to darkness, the moon rises.

This beautiful gibbous moon, just one day shy of a full moon, brightens the night. This was the inspiration for Aliana Reaches for the Moon.

Look for more photos of the moon tomorrow.

Why I’m feeling over the moon 🌙 💜 🌝

This week, we received accolades from two STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) professionals for the book ALIANA REACHES FOR THE MOON. 

“This short children’s book imparts many pearls of wisdom about the qualities of a scientist, while telling an engaging story about a girl’s caring relationship with her younger brother. Using her ingenuity, imagination, and ordinary household materials, Aliana creates a special experience for Gustavo’s 5th birthday. Aliana Reaches for the Moon encourages all children – and especially girls – to read, explore, experiment, and to take notice of the natural world. There’s even an important message for parents – doing science can be messy!”    ~ Grace Wolf-Chase, PhD; Astronomer, Adler Planetarium

If you’re not familiar with Adler Planetarium, in Chicago, IL you should make plans to visit and you can check it out here: Adlerplanetarium.org

Curiosity and imagination, paired with research and experimental play, help Aliana bring her unique idea to life. Aliana Reaches for the Moon will inspire readers to use science, imagination, and experimental play to create their own innovations.”   ~Linda Schwab, Flight Director,  Challenger Learning Center of Northwest Indiana

The Challenger Center is an educational organization that offers amazing opportunities for learning about Space Science Education at over 40 centers around the world, primarily located in the US.
