Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
The first two pages provide a definition and overview of the Solar System. A drawing shows the size of the planets "roughly to scale, but the distances between them are not to scale." Browsing readers can look for the eye-catching star facts that are found throughout the book. Clear, simple sentences present the discovery of Uranus and Neptune. For budding astronomers and astronauts, mention is made of Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 and the Hubble Space Telescope. There are a few experiments for readers. The author explains why Pluto is no longer considered a planet. The photos are clear and interesting. A glossary and index are also included. The final page contains notes for parents and teachers offering further information. A mix of drawing and photographs in this 24-book will help both browsers and students working on assignments. Sidebars are distinguished from the main text by print size. This is part of the "QEB Solar System" series, which, as a whole, provides a good introduction for young readers to the sun, planets, moons, meteors, asteroids and comets. Reviewer: Sharon Salluzzo
