Overview

Aspiring astronauts, star gazing astrophysicists, and even toddlers pointing at the moon will now have the right stuff for exploring our galaxy. With rhymes for younger children and their accompanying fact-filled expository test for older readers, syndicated "Yak's Corner" columnists Janis Campbell and Cathy Collison shuttle us through an out of this world alphabet as seen through the windshield of a space ship. Each page answers galactic questions like: What planet is 300 times heavier than Earth? Why is space the ultimate place to study? Which planet is closest to the sun and which one is the farthest? Who said, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind"?

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
"A is for Astronomy, / the science of outer space. / It's how we explore the nighttime sky, / and keep track of each planet's place." With inviting rhymes, G Is for Galaxy guides us through the alphabet, from A to "Z is for Zodiac," providing lots of fascinating information about the planets and stars along the way.
Children's Literature
Language can be as captivating as outer space with this engaging alphabet book. Each item from A to Z brings the extraterrestrial a bit closer. Like the other alphabet books published by Sleeping Bear Press, this book uses a two-tiered format that works well with the alphabetic arrangement. Each page features a different letter showcased in a four-line rhyme. The side of the page presents a paragraph or two of more detailed information about the planets, space technology, and other astronomy-related topics. Young readers will likely be drawn in by the rhymes and artwork, while older readers will be thrilled by the enlightening sidebars. The authors deftly cover a variety of astronomy-related topics, including the Big Bang, Earth, lunar footprints, Edmund Halley, sound in space, and many others. Stacy's illustrations will fire the imagination even after the last page is turned. This is one alphabet book that will keep readers coming back. 2005, Sleeping Bear/Thomson Gale, Ages 4 to 10.
