Overview

The Scholastic First Encyclodedia series is written and illustrated with the youngest readers in mind. ALL ABOUT SPACE introduces children to the solar system, astronomy, and space travel.

SCHOLASTIC FIRST ENCYCLOPEDIA: ALL ABOUT SPACE covers all the basic questions a young child may have about the solar system and space travel. This book begins by guiding children to each of the planets in the solar system with the help of photographs, illustrations, and easy-to-understand text. Comets, asteroids, and meteors are also discussed. Next, children will learn about the different people that study outer space. Not only will kids find out who these people are, but they will also learn about the different techniques and tools they use to practice their trades. The final section of the book is devoted to space travel. Here, kids get an introduction to what it takes to send astronauts into space and what goes on once they are out there.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A comprehensive information book for early readers will have good illustrations and simple text. This book covers the solar system, the study of space and space travel with excellent photos, diagrams, drawings and an organized text that is understandable for the primary grade student. Unique to this book is a list of related entries on each page to guide readers to other sections of the book for more information. These cross-references will assist readers to use informational books as tools to acquire more background on the topic of space. Each chapter is a double-page spread with sidebars, full sentence captions, select vocabulary in bold and sub-titled paragraphs. A team of consultants put this book together but unfortunately, the scientists are named without science affiliations. 2002, Scholastic Reference,
