Children’s Questions about the Earth
 Voula Mastori

129pp.
Ellinika Grammata, 2007
ISBN: 960-19-0129-9
ISBN13: 978-960-19-0129-9

Why does it get dark at night? Why don’t we fall off the earth? And if the Earth is spinning, why don’t we get dizzy? Sooner or later, every child wants to know. In this series of books, Voula Mastori gives satisfying answers to their questions about the natural world. An accomplished storyteller, she serves up the scientific facts in a palatable mix of narrative, myths and poems. Inspired, she says, by the endless questions of her young neighbour Amalia and her unquenchable curiosity, the author explains everything from gravity to the Earth’s rotation. Galileo and Newton are here, and so is the fated demigod Phaethon, who wanted to drive the chariot of his father, the Sun. Readers can check what they have learnt in the quiz at the end of the book.
The other volumes in this attractive series answer children’s questions about electricity, light and the sea.
