Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Julia Beiker
Do you know that at least sixty-three moons orbit Jupiter? Do you know which planets are made entirely of gas and which have solid surfaces? Is there life on any planet besides Earth? Why is Uranus called the sideways planet? As a reader explores this book, all of these questions can easily be answered and more cool facts discovered. The simple easy-to-read text and colorful realistic photographs add even more to this awesome reference book that can enhance any science report about planets in our solar system. Check out the author's note for great tips on how to write a book report. This in-depth book about planets provides many answers, but it also will make readers want to discover more about the worlds surrounding the Earth. The glossary at the end of the book will help to define the more scientific words associated with the solar system. Sue Whiting did an excellent job of pulling out high interest information that would draw students into using this book. Many reference books are written at a much higher reading level, which intimidates young readers and stops them from wanting to use nonfiction books. Be sure to check out other books in this "National Geographic Science Chapter Series."
