Children's LiteratureIf I were in grades two to five and needed to do a report on one of the planets, then I hope my teacher or librarian would point me to the "Exploring Planets" series. The books were developed using the National Science Education Standards, and the quality shows. This book flows well, with one concept and almost always an excellent photograph gracing each page. There are dozens of interesting facts about Neptune—it has four rings, is blue in color, has eight moons and is one of the coldest planets in our solar system—and about the people who discovered it and those who continue to research it. There is information on how to use the Internet for additional research, a science experiment, glossary, an index, a quiz and a table comparing the features of all nine planets. This is a book, and series, well worth adding to your science-focused bookshelf. 2004, Weigl Publishers Inc, Ages 7 to 11.
