Though aimed at young readers, this series does not shy away from including high-level scientific vocabulary and lesser-known examples in its discussion of the solar system. Students will discover where the Suns photosphere and chromosphere are located, what a perihelion is, and what Eros is and where its located as well as more commonly known facts about space and the objects that occupy it. Striking, full-page images will entice readers, while the unique designeach page mimics the look of a smartphone screen, complete with battery life icons for page numbersis fresh and contemporary. Astronomy at Home, a hands-on activity at the end of each book, reinforces the material while encouraging connected learning and independent study. VERDICT Strong selections that wont sit on the shelves for long.
