Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Scientists have figured out that the Solar System was formed 4.6 billion years ago. It was a dark, whirling mass of gas and dust. While spinning, gravity pulled bits tighter together. The dense center became the Sun, and dust farther out came together to form the planets. If you have ever wondered what lies in space beyond our planet, this is the book for you. The exploration of Mercury and Venus, a stop at Earth and our Moon, and then Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are covered in an interesting and engaging format. You will discover the moons that orbit these planets and other features of the Solar System, such as asteroids, comets and meteoroids. There are question and answer boxes, space bits and awesome facts throughout the book to keep the reader fascinated with facts and figures. The colors and illustrations are accurate and easy to read, while the cartoons make a very scientific topic fun. There is a planet-facts chart that compares the nine planets and our Solar System. The glossary and index are helpful in finding information quickly, as this book is full of scientific information. 2001, Copper Beech Books, $22.90. Ages 10 to 15. Reviewer: Karen Werner
