School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-6-In this colorful book, the facts of the universe unfold in fascinating detail. Starting with the solar system, the author takes readers on a visually stunning trip through the Milky Way, discussing stars and star types; other galaxies; instruments used in skywatching, both ancient and modern; people and space; and what the future might bring. While the two-page topical spreads are busy, the three or four paragraphs with headings and separate fact boxes keep the information organized. Students will find a wealth of material for reports and leisure readers will enjoy the creative blend of text and supporting images.-Linda Wadleigh, Oconee County Middle School, Watkinsville, GA (c) Copyright 2010.
