Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 3-5

Devoting all but one entry (Stars and Constellations ) to the denizens of our solar system, "The Universe" bridges the gap between these primary-grade titles and more systematic treatments. With most of the planets and Earth's Moon given separate volumes but Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and Eris shoehorned together into The Outer Planets , the level of detail isn't consistent throughout, but with several brief, separated passages of text beneath attention-getting headers ("How's the weather on Saturn?" "Do comets ever crash?") on each page, accompanying a informatively-captioned color photo or diagram, the presentation in each survey is designed for quick access to information.
