More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leona Illig
The sun, the indispensable star in our universe for life on earth, is the subject of this book in the "Sky Watching" series. The book covers topics such as the composition of the sun; conditions near the sun; how the sun moves; how the sun affects the earth; and what the future holds for the sun (spoiler alert: it's not good). There is an excellent section describing how to safely view the sun. The organization of the material is outstanding. Instead of simply presenting facts, the author uses them to construct a narrative that is coherent and entertaining. Astronomy is full of ideas and terms that are likely to be unfamiliar to young readers. The author, however, breaks down complex information into pieces that can be easily understood. In most chapters, a short introductory paragraph, which contains a number of facts about the topic at hand, is presented. Then, the ideas in that paragraph are explained and expanded upon in three or four short paragraphs following the introduction. For example, the comparison of the way energy travels in a convective zone to the movement of boiling water in a pot is very useful. The layout, in which the text and illustrations are presented as though they are being seen through a telescope lens, is inspired. Charts, graphs, photographs, and illustrations work together to illustrate the various points in the book. The book contains a list of related websites, a glossary, and an index. The end of the book, which describes how our dying star will give life to a new star, provides an uplifting conclusion to the discussion. Teachers, librarians, parents, and young readers seeking material on the solar system will find this book indispensable. Reviewer: Leona Illig
School Library Journal
Gr 2–4—This series invites young observers to step outside-day or night-and look up. Each volume opens with a basic spread on "Sky Watching," goes on to provide simple answers to similar sets of questions, and closes with similar pages of advice about the best and safest ways to sky watch. Along with duplicate and/or near-duplicate content, factual errors are not uncommon. For example, in Comets, Arizona's Barringer (misspelled "Berringer") Meteor Crater is incorrectly dubbed the "largest known impact crater on Earth," and the Sun isn't really "the source of all Earth's energy" as claimed twice in Sun. Furthermore, a schematic view of the solar system in each volume does a poor job of showing the sun's size in comparison to the individual planets. The photos and digital art, along with the easily digestible text blocks, give these books visual appeal, but the contents are both superficial and untrustworthy.
