Robert Heinlein

Fiction, Science Fiction

Many of Heinlein's stories were set in the same future, where way led on to way. Most of these stories are collected in The Past Through Tomorrow, including popular ones such as "The Man Who Sold the Moon." As with many science fiction stories, some of these have lost their sense of reality over the years as new knowledge has been acquired, but they are still internally consistent and deal more with the effects of technology on people than the technologies themselves.

If you like Heinlein, it's not a bad collection, and it is pretty much kid-safe because of the time period these stories were written. In fact, the worst your kids will have to deal with is the interjections of "Gee!" There are worse things in life.
