Choose a planet and search for it in the library’s catalog: www.deschuteslibrary.org/catalog
. You will find information about each planet and its moons, if it has them!
Example: Neptune by Josepha Sherman
has a chapter called “Neptune’s Strange Moons and Rings”
The library also has a lot of great resources you can use through our website. They are called databases, and you can find them here: http://www.deschuteslibrary.org/onlineresources
. Scroll down to the category called “Homework” and you’ll find:
-> The World Book Encyclopedia (search for “moons”)
-> Kid’s Info Bits (choose Science and Math, then Space and Astronomy)
You will need your library card to use these resources unless you are in the public library.
