Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Pat Trattles
In this "Zigzag Book" from National Geographic Kids, young readers travel from the sun to the farthest reaches of our galaxy in this solar system adventure. The entire text is told in a mere 12 rhyming sentences. Additional information is presented in sidebar comments or drawings, such as the road sign on the dwarf planet Eris pointing the way to the sun, 10 billion miles away. The illustrations are simple and color filled with very little white space. Backgrounds are in vivid shades of blue, green, orange, purple or yellow depending on the subject matter presented. Even the sentences are colorful. On the first spread the words planet, place and space in the sentence, "Every planet has a place in space," are printed in green while the remainder of the sentence is white. Stressing each of the colored words in the sentences as you read helps set the rhythm and rhyme scheme for entire piece. On the final spread readers follow a zigzag path of questions designed to get them thinking more about our solar system and our place in it. Ideal for early elementary classroom libraries, this book will also appeal to preschoolers who want to learn a little about space while curling up in the lap of a caregiver. Reviewer: Pat Trattles
