Rani and Maryam are determined to see the Moon up close, and they know the grumpy retired astronomer Ms. Lisa has the perfect telescope for it.  But her cat Leo has scratched it up beyond use.  Can they convince Ms. Lisa to show them how to turn household objects into a working telescope?  Follow the step-by-step instructions to build a telescope with them!

Astronomer’s Toolbox is a hands-on introduction to astronomy and engineering that mixes charming characters, unique storylines, and step-by-step instructions.  Our novel approach introduces the wonderful universe beyond our Earth and shows how, with a little creativity, we can design ingenious tools from household items.  Follow the adventures of Rani and Maryam, two curious kids who apprentice themselves to Ms. Lisa and uncover the wonders of space.  As they design tools like a telescope and a latitude locator, each book provides clear instructions for young astronomers to follow along at home and create their own astronomer’s toolbox.
