Children's Literature
Planet Earth is the home to a vastness of life forms that boggles the mind. Unlike any other planet in our solar system, Earth has achieved the right mix of variables to play host to this multiplicity of life. Earth, is a relatively modest-sized planet when compared to giants such as Jupiter and Saturn. Yet, because of a scientific twist of fate it rests in just the right orbital plane to receive enough resources of heat, light, and atmospheric integrity to support living beings. Author Steven L. Kipp traces some of the rudimentary elements of Earth's place in the cosmos in this volume of "The Galaxy" series. Kipp touches on topics such as Earth's pattern of rotation, its orbital pathway, and the interrelationship between the Earth and the sun. Throughout the book Kipp presents complicated scientific material in a manner that will inform and interest younger readers. This is also a book that tells Earth's story visually as numerous colorful illustrations are included. Taken as a whole, this is a creditable chapter in a science series for children that has value. 2000, Bridgestone Books, Romaneck
