The Sun must be bigger than our Earth, but just how much bigger is it?  And what’s the size difference between a big planet like Jupiter and a smaller one like Neptune?  Ms. Lisa thinks she knows how to help Maryam and Rani understand those huge distances.  Follow the step-by-step instructions to build and set up a scale model of our enormous solar system along 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.
