Where is the earth? Where is the sun? Where are the stars?

Now in a Dragonfly edition, here is an out-of-this world introduction to the universe for children. With earth as a starting point, a young astronaut leads readers on a tour past each planet and on to the stars, answering simple questions about our solar system. In clear language, drawings, and diagrams, space unfolds before a child's eyes. Colorful illustrations, filled with fun and detail, give children a lot to look for on every page and a glossary helps reinforce new words and concepts. A terrific teaching tool, Me and My Place in Space is an easy and enjoyable way to introduce the concept of space to the very youngest astronomers.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Sweeney starts with a young girl in her bedroom, musing about the planet Earth and its place among the other planets in our solar system. She reflects on the planets and imparts a few basic facts about each--Saturn's rings are made of ice particles, Neptune has the strongest winds of any planet in our system where its Great Dark Spot is an enormous cyclone. She speculates about life on other planets--and whether there is another planet like earth, and another little girl like her. The last page contains a brief glossary.
