Hi all - I'm looking for a gift for age 6++ who is interested in Mars and the Moon.

 

Any answers gratefully received.

 

If you don't have a suggestion but do have a similar request for a different age or specific topic, feel free to add it

 

Clear skies!

Small binoculars, 7x35 or similar.  Great for the moon, star fields, birds, squirrels, airplanes, etc.

Already has a telescope. However, may still be a good idea, as the telescope takes a bit of setup.

Have you checked your local library for books on the Moon and Mars?  My local library has quite a few books on the moon.....

I bought my niece this book some time ago https://www.amazon.c...9-1196403?psc=1 and she loves it. I think it's a good one for kids
