Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
On a clear night, you may see several of balls of glowing gas up in the sky. Read about stars and find out how they are born. Learn how scientists differentiate between the stars. There are color photographs and diagrams that are found throughout the book. Examine the Cat's Eye Nebula picture that was taken by the Hubble Space Telescope and the Chandra X-ray Observatory. Read about the sun which is the closest star to Earth. Follow the diagram showing the stages of a star's life. A question guides the information in each chapter; check the table of contents for the chapter question. Some students may need support with the layout of the text; there are double captions for some illustrations and full page insets to navigate when reading. For students undertaking research about stars, there is a list of resources including books, web sites, and places to visit for additional information. Those readers who are interested in other objects in space may wish to check the other books in "A True Book" series. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
