Special Newsletter Announcing Homer Hickam's The Lunar Rescue Company, the 3rd in the Helium-3 Series!
Special Homer Hickam Newsletter
SPECIAL TO EVERYONE WORRIED ABOUT THE FUTURE OF AMERICA'S CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN
Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Teachers:
Are you worried about the future of your children, grandchildren, and students? If you are, you aren't alone. Homer Hickam is, too. That's why he wrote the Helium-3 trilogy that began with Crater followed by Crescent and now joined by Crater Trueblood and The Lunar Rescue Company.
These books tell adventurous stories of the future that most young people, even reluctant readers,
soon find themselves lost within, turning page after page in eager
anticipation of what's going to happen next. Homer has written these
tales to not only tell good stories but to also give young people fascinating details of what it will be like to live on the ultimate frontier of space.
How will these novels help your children, grandchildren, and students?
Because folded within Homer's fascinating stories are lessons in
science that don't seem like lessons at all. We have heard from science
teachers nation-wide who love these novels because their students learn science the best way possible. While they are having fun!!!
Young Crater Reader
wrote these books for readers ages 10-18 but everyone will enjoy them.
In fact, we think you'll want to read them before gifting them to the
young people in your family or classroom! We're also certain you'll
agree that there are few books more likely to be enjoyed by young
readers while also teaching them some important lessons, not only in
science but also on the value of hard work, courage, duty, and honor.
These books, although following a timeline, can be read in any order with the same enjoyment.
For instance, early readers have acclaimed Crater Trueblood and The Lunar Rescue Company a great summer book and beach read!
