Synopsis

The Kingfisher Space Encyclopedia by Dr. Mike, Dr Goldsmith

Comprehensive illustrated encyclopedias with full-colour photographs and artwork which illustrate the informative and accessible text. A glossary and index are included along with a list of web sites for further learning.

With dramatic full-bleed artwork, a visual design that organizes the information into clear, digestible sections, the latest photography, and special features such as digital cutaways, step-bystep sequences, and callouts featuring key scientific ideas, this amazing 160-page volume is the perfect guide to space for today's visual learners. Arranged thematically into five key areas--Observing Space, The Solar System, Stars and galaxies, Space Exploration, and Space in the Future--this encyclopedia features concise text by an astrophysics expert that is coherent, accurate and perfectly pitched for middle-grade audiences. A glossary and index are included in the back matter along with a list of web sites to take the learning beyond the book. The unbeatable combination of great design, authoritative information, and affordable price makes this the perfect home or classroom reference for any curious space explorer.
