Comment on Astronomy Within Reach

Charlie Els

I did enjoy “Astronomy within Reach”; so much so that I decided not give it to my grand children in Australia, but to keep it myself! They have lots of entertainment and I think that, although it is very well written and easy to read, it is still a little advanced for a 9 and 11 year old. I also enjoy Neville’s e-mails about, for instance, the recent meteorite that exploded over Russia. His enthusiasm I, in fact, contagious.
