Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
5, 4, 3, 2, 1—blastoff! If a trip into space is in your future, this book is for you. But before taking off, flip open the cover of the book to get the facts about what you may discover in space. The face of a boy who looks amazed and a little green man in a space ship are symbols repeated throughout the book to help you zoom into amazing facts and mysteries. Specific information is included about planets, the sun, moons, galaxies, the night sky, the solar system, stars, big space, and spacecraft as well as other things. In addition to the thought-provoking text, the book is peppered with dazzling graphics that explain the topics in detail. A brilliant two-page spread midway through lays out the inferior and superior planets in the solar system. A chart depicting planet distances from the sun makes the material understandable. After reading about the effects of crashing asteroids and meteors you may choose to cover your head when gazing into the sky. State of the art telescopes and satellites are discussed and a fun-filled page of quizzes and glossary terms completes this well-structured book from "The Giant Book of" series. 2000, Copper Beach Books/Millbrook Press,

Children's Literature - Pat Trattles
Do you know with binoculars you can see up to 5000 stars, or that it takes light four years to reach us from Proxima Centauri, the nearest star to the Sun? Do you know each six square centimeter of the Sun's surface burns with the brightness of 1.5 million candles, or that the Sun is one hundred times wider than the Earth? Readers will learn these facts and many others in this title from in the "Science Library" series from Mason Crest Publishers. Designed for upper elementary and beginning middle school students, it covers stars, planets, space giants and dwarfs, space and space trash, space travel, space observation, and the Big Bang theory. In short, if it has anything to do with space, it is covered. Each chapter begins with a short introduction to the topic then is supplemented with colorful photographs, diagrams, illustrations, and short boxed paragraphs providing more detailed information. A grid with labeled coordinates forms the background of each page. This grid is used to cross reference information and lead readers to related subjects within the book. For example, readers who want to know more after reading about white dwarf stars on page 27 are referred to page 24 (m13) where they can read about how stars are born. Each two page spread also contains statistics and interesting facts, amazing trivia, and suggested websites for further information. Complete with glossary and detailed index, this information packed book is a great addition to the science classroom. Reviewer: Pat Trattles
