Synopsis

Astronomy by Melanie Melton Knocke

This little book with big information will send kids flying into outer space to explore our fascinating universe. Of course, they'll learn about the planets, moons and stars. But this lively information-packed guide also includes fantastic astronomical phenomena that will make a child's eyes open wide in amazement: everything from black holes to white dwarfs to red giants. The voyage begins in our own solar system, starting with the sun and proceeding from Mercury to Pluto - with the occasional asteroid, comet and meteor thrown in. Follow a star's life from beginning to end; do deep sky astronomy (the study of objects beyond our system) and have fun observing the heavens through binoculars and telescopes. There's lots of cool trivia and quizzes throughout, too!
