Booklist Review

Gr. 3-6. These slim books pack a great deal of information into their question-and-answer formats. The questions, grouped according to subject, ask what kids want to know, both for personal interest and for reports: How do astronauts get ready for space? Does space look blue like the sky? Do any deep-sea fish make their own light? The space title covers the past, present, and future of space travel, and what space feels and looks like, while the ocean title answers questions about the movement of water, animal and plant life, tides, coral reefs, and more. Handsomely illustrated with paintings by John Rice (oceans) and Vincent Di Fate (space), these titles are ideal for browsing and for gleaning general information. --Helen Rosenberg
