Overview


Kids will find engrossing facts along with food for their imaginations in this 3-D introduction to the planets, the stars, the galaxies, and human exploration of space. Full-color pop-ups and gatefold illustrations on every spread show the Earth and its relation to the Sun and Moon, the solar system's planets revolving around the Sun, asteroids, comets, meteoroids, and other heavenly bodies. Even the dramatic front cover, which illustrates a NASA space shuttle, features a slide-open door to reveal details of the craft's interior. The book's two final illustrations show--
  • A rocket launch with a pull-tab that moves the rocket
  • The International Space Station, which pops up to present a 3-D effect

It's a voyage into space that every boy and girl can take, simply by opening this exciting, color-illustrated book!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The information is accurate and up-to-date."

The Horn Book Guide, July-December 2007

Children's Literature - Eleanor Heldrich
On the last page of this Discoverology book, along with an index, there is a list of editorial participants and another of picture credits. There are photographs from NASA and Caltech, diagrams to illustrate how things work, art that portrays the relative size of the planets, a diagram to show the earth's surface and the depth of its atmosphere, and digital art that makes space travel come alive. The content is divided into thirteen sections: "Studying Space," "The Solar System," "The Sun," "Eclipses," "The Earth and Space," "The Moon," "The Planets," "Mars," "Smaller Bodies," "The Life of a Star," "Galaxies," "Exploring Space," and "Space Stations." Interactive features of the book include pop-ups and two turning wheels; one shows the birth of a star and the other, the effect of the moon on tides. There are even flaps to lift to reveal the interior construction of a space suit. The mix of art and photography blends nicely on the black background of the pages. Anyone, no matter how old, will find this presentation absorbing. Reviewer: Eleanor Heldrich
School Library Journal

Gr 4-6
Wheels, pull-tabs, gatefolds, and pop-ups animate this quick tour of the solar system and beyond. Printed in white on black backgrounds, the scattered text blocks and captions present selected basic facts that are updated enough to bill Neptune as the "most distant planet." Children will most likely focus first on the art, though, which ranges from handsome space photos, diagrams, and digital conceptions to movable effects that include a sliding panel on the front cover, a spacesuit with multiple flaps that lift to reveal what's inside, and 3-D models of an Apollo Landing Module, a Mars Rover, and a peek-inside segment of the International Space Station. Consider this for display or as an attention-getting way of introducing units on space and space exploration.
