Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Julia Beiker
Now young scientists can enjoy an array of amazing facts about planets and moons, served with a large dose of tickling their funny bones. For instance, readers learn that about 4.5 billion years ago, the sun and the solar system formed, and the will keep burning for another five million years. The following page asks, "What does the star of the solar system like to eat for dessert?" and the answer is "A hot fudge sun-dae." Ha! Ha! Melissa Stewart figures out a way to lighten up the serious and straightforward topic of science. Vivid photographs and illustrations combine with simple text and bold-faced vocabulary words to provide a way for readers to learn more about our solar system. Readers learn how to write their own silly science jokes and learn from the glossary, information about more ways to research, and the index. This book is part of the "Super Silly Science Jokes" series. Reviewer: Julia Beiker
