Children's Literature
5, 4, 3, 2, 1—blastoff! If a trip into space is in your future, this book is for you. But before taking off, flip open the cover of the book to get the facts about what you may discover in space. The face of a boy who looks amazed and a little green man in a space ship are symbols repeated throughout the book to help you zoom into amazing facts and mysteries. Specific information is included about planets, the sun, moons, galaxies, the night sky, the solar system, stars, big space, and spacecraft as well as other things. In addition to the thought-provoking text, the book is peppered with dazzling graphics that explain the topics in detail. A brilliant two-page spread midway through lays out the inferior and superior planets in the solar system. A chart depicting planet distances from the sun makes the material understandable. After reading about the effects of crashing asteroids and meteors you may choose to cover your head when gazing into the sky. State of the art telescopes and satellites are discussed and a fun-filled page of quizzes and glossary terms completes this well-structured book from "The Giant Book of" series. 2000, Copper Beach Books/Millbrook Press,
