Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The planet of Venus may be similar to Earth in size, but its surface is very different. Venus has no oceans or water in any form. It is too hot. It does, however, have some areas that are like volcanoes, and a high plain called Lakshmi Planus, that is surrounded by mountains. The text illustrates with diagrams and computer-generated pictures, what the continents of Venus look like. Mercury is a small planet, but is the planet nearest to the sun. Its surface is covered with thousands of craters. Inset boxes throughout the text give quick, brief facts about the planets. One of ten volumes in the series "Planet Library" The series is excellent and would be a desirable addition to an elementary or middle school collection, as well as science classrooms. 2000, Lerner Books, Ages 8 to 14, $22.60.
