Children's Literature - Susan Treadway M.Ed
Studying aspects of our vast universe can be daunting for a student at any age. The "Discovering Space" series tackles planets, space objects, stars, galaxies and other elements as an introduction to deeper studies. Since the sun is the only star in Earth's solar system, it is the biggest and brightest one. Even so, there is much to learn about this powerful source of heat and energy. Graham designed these compact books with bold, consistent formatting and appealing graphics. Every chapter contains basic facts, fascinating information, and specific data, presented with clarity. The "Spotlight on Space" sections describe more interesting details, while there is also a timeline, glossary, index, and lists of web site addresses. Information on myths and magic, storms, telling time, eclipses, what is inside the sun, the sun as alife source, the sun's origin, and other intriguing aspects are part of the mysteries of our very own star. Students will find this series helpful for academic pursuits but also for curiosity and pleasure. Reviewer: Susan Treadway, M.Ed
