Astronomy: An Introduction

USD $7.95

This book shows slight cover scratching and wear but is in perfect condition otherwise so we are listing this as a discount book. Astronomy is offered to 7th grade students within the Waldorf curriculum and von Baravalle’s book will be wonderfully helpful in that context. However, Astronomy goes beyond a confined, pedagogical use in that it is actually a lovely introduction to the pleasures of gazing at the sky on a clear night. Baravalle clearly loved his subject, because that love radiates from every page. This is a book that will fire enthusiasm in young and old, and what is learned here and by carrying out the exercises will remain throughout a lifetime. A great little treasure, this one! Contents…
