This is a great book for a classroom who is studying the solar system. The class works together and they learn about the moon in some very hands-on ways. I love how Harry brings the moon to life with his lube & oil suite and his gumball helmet. ( )

This book is a great example of a contemporary fiction story. Though it is not a true story, it could happen in a classroom today. The setting is mostly in the classroom as the students work together to research moon facts. In the end, the class goes outside to look at the full moon through the telescope that they earned through a bake sale (moon sale).
