Earth Below Us, Drifting Falling. Floating Weightless, Coming Coming Home.
I was speaking with an editor the other day when, while discussing an upcoming sci-fi novel, the topic of science in children's books came up. Thus it was that I was told about the site Science In Kids Books. It's hosted by one Ms. Marianne Dyson, a former NASA Flight Controller. She reviews children's books for scientific accuracy saying, "I hope that the book reviews below will help young people (and educators) choose nonfiction books that are accurate, and science fiction books that will not fill their heads with misconceptions such as that a lack of air produces weightlessness." For a fee she'll even take a gander at your manuscript, just in case you mentioned something mistakenly nutty like, "the moon has a dark side." So just in case you were wavering on whether or not Earth To Stella had any legitimate scientific basis, here's the place to check up on it. Nice lengthy reviews too. Just my cup of tea.
