Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A brief history of space travel and exploration is catalogued in this beginning reader. From Babylon in 3000 B.C. to the modern International Space Station, discoveries, inventions, and adventurers abound. Children will gain knowledge of a variety of space-related topics in this colorful easy reader. Within six quick chapters, planets are described in great detail, along with the accomplishments of early space explorers. Biographic summaries of famous pioneers in the field from Ptolemy and Copernicus all the way to Yuri Gagarin and Alan Shepard are available to inspire young adventurers. A simple description of the space race guides readers through the process that led two countries into the great unknown. Many cultures are represented in the timeline of space discoveries. Vivid illustrations and remarkably clear and up-to-date photographs make this book very appealing. With only one to two paragraphs on each page, young readers can build reading confidence while learning about space. Helpful guides, including bold print, italics, and captions, assist students with improving comprehension. This book provides an excellent bridge to connect the disciplines of science and reading. It is step four in the "Step into Reading" series. 2004, Random House, Ages 7 to 10.
