You, Among the Stars , Herman and Nina Schneider, Symeon Shimin, Published by W.R. Scott, 1951


1951 "Young Scott Science" book with beautiful lithographs by Symeon Shimin.

"In this first book about the universe, Herman and Nina Schneider quietly pick up the reader at his own front door, and lead him step by step to the farthest star.
In the familiar terms of a post-card, a rubber ball, a merry-go-round, they help him to see the order behind the apparent aimlessness of empty space. Through these simple obiects. he can then feel and understand the fixed and steady circling of the sun, moon, and stars in their cosmic merry-go-round.
Child and man, we need this sure knowledge of the harmony and reliability of the cosmic world. And just as importantly, each of us needs a feeling, a sense, a picture of his own place in the universe."
