Aliens and Other Visitors

From the Series Not Near Normal: The Paranormal

Could life-forms from other parts of the universe really travel all the way to Earth? If alien sightings are just fictional stories, why have so many people provided such similar accounts of encounters with extraterrestrials and their spacecraft? What would it be like to witness an alien or UFO from another world, and how can you tell if the object speeding across the sky has been sent by an advanced civilization to study—or even invade—our planet? In Aliens and Other Visitors, children will read historical stories and modern-day accounts of alien encounters. Kids will get all the information they need to help them spot possible UFOs. Children will also investigate the truth behind alien stories, exploring the fears and superstitions of different cultures and looking at the scientific facts that might explain the seemingly unexplainable. If you love a scary story that sounds like it’s straight out of science fiction but also want to investigate the truth behind these myths, this is the book for you!
