Exploring Our Universe - School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

After reading this series, students are certain to walk away with a newfound appreciation for the myriad wonders of the cosmos. Filled with an impressive amount of details each volume introduces kids to scientific terms with unexpected definitions (Trojans are asteroids outside of the asteroid belt) as well as the proper names of celestial bodies most likely unknown to casual readers. One such example: the main arms of the Milky Way are named Scutum-Centaurus and Perseus, while the minor arms are named Sagittarius and Norma (Galaxies). The inclusion of a "Guidebook" in each tome reiterates data in a concise and straightforward format. Rich images and artist’s depictions as well as breathtaking photographs complete this appealing and information-packed set. Consider for collections that serve space buffs.
