I've yet to read another book for kids about the universe that is so compact and yet so informative. There's a little bit about a lot of subjects under the astronomy umbrella. Despite the fact that rocket science can be an intimidating subject, the reading here is light, informative and fascinating. The author never talks down to the reader, and he uses language that keeps kids wanting to turn the page to learn more. --Smart Books for Smart Kids
