Booklist Review

Gr. 2^-4. Each book in the Kaleidoscope series features some aspect of science or technology. The text appears on pages with plenty of white space and in fairly large type facing a colorful illustration: a photograph, a radar or satellite image, or a painting of the subject. Planets introduces each planet in the solar system with a rather brief, basic text and one or two pictures. Space Stations briefly discusses the Salyut, Skylab, and Mir space stations as historical background for the ISS, International Space Station, which began construction in space in 2000 and will be increasingly in the news as it approaches completion in 2003. With few other books available on the subject, this one will serve as a good introduction for young students. Check the Series Roundup, this issue, for more titles. --Carolyn Phelan
