Children's Literature - Pat Trattles
Jupiter and Saturn are the biggest planets in our solar system. In fact, Jupiter, the larger of the two, is bigger than all the other planets put together. These facts, as well as many others, are presented in a simple question and answer format that will quickly pull young readers in, enticing them to learn more about space in this installment of the "Exploring Our Solar System" series from Crabtree Publishing. Each two-page spread deals with a main focus question, and three or four follow-ups. Readers will learn such facts as what Jupiter and Saturn are made of, how they formed, and what lies under Jupiter's cloud tops. Also included are "Wow" spots; snippets of additional information presented in red or purple shaded circles. The information contained therein, (such as, Jupiter takes 11.9 Earth years to orbit the sun, while Saturn takes 29.5 years,) is designed to cause the reader to marvel and say "Wow." These colorful "Wow" spots, along with full-color photographs and graphics accompanying the text, make this presentation visually appealing as well as information packed. Complete with a detailed table of contents, index, glossary and table of statistical facts and figures, this work is a welcome addition to upper elementary and lower middle school science classroom and library bookshelves.
