Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Part of the "QEB Start Writing" series, this early reader introduces factual concepts that broaden scientific knowledge and entertain. Written in an easy-to- follow format, each page is complemented with amazing photographs of our solar system and clearly-defined illustrations. The use of simple analogies (such as the warmth of a campfire and how it compares to the warmth of the sun) provides a real sense of the sun's solar magnitude. Highlighted terms throughout the text are complemented with an illustrated glossary that helps reinforce newly-learned concepts. The use of a Parents' and Teachers' notes page is also a great way of expanding the reader's imagination with questions regarding factual content. This is a wonderful resource for beginning writers to use in either a classroom or home setting. 2004, QEB Publishing Inc, Ages 5 to 8.
