Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This slim-volume reveals the facts and fun of space exploration to young readers. Brief chapters contain information that is easy-to-read with plenty of bright visual images. This book is part of a ten volume set titled, "Universes, Large and Small" by Discovery Channel. The many activities for the reader make it an interactive text. Eye-witness accounts take the reader to the moon, while the section on heroes introduces astronomer Carl Sagan to the reader. The Hubble Telescope and its mission are covered in the "amazing but true section." "Scientists Notebook" introduces young researchers to scientists from the past and from the present, such as Debra Fischer who is a member of Planet Search Team and the astronomer Maria Mitchell. Other topics include astronaut food, space toilets, and much more. This book is an excellent resource and its fun format will be a hit with readers. 2004, Gareth Stevens Publishing, Ages 9 to 12.
