Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Treadway M.Ed
Exploring the universe can be an unforgettable adventure. There is still so much that is unknown! In the series "Discovering Space," however, readers are launched into challenging orbits without intimidation. As an engaging, compact introduction to the wonders of space, books include a timeline, glossary, index, and web site addresses. Even though the books are full of vivid detail, students will be engrossed with topics such as ice in space (comets), stardust, asteroids, space dust, shooting stars, and meteorites. Collisions with Earth by space objects are part of our planet's history and may still be possible today. Perhaps seeing such strange objects in this book may ignite students' further curiosity to become an astronaut, a scientist, an astronomer, or other new world explorer. Indeed, Graham has designed a winning formula with this series for primarily experienced readers. Reviewer: Susan Treadway, M.Ed
