Reviews

School Library Journal"Series Made Simple" - Grace Oliff

This series takes readers on an imaginary trip through the universe. Nicely paced conversational texts deliver full descriptions about "What’s Out There?" and instructions for how to prepare for the journey, including how to train and what to bring. The history of previous exploratory ventures is detailed, and information about what space scientists hope to discover in the future is covered. Sidebars providing interesting facts and profiles are sprinkled liberally throughout, and clear photographs and illustrations enhance every page. Interviews with a variety of astronauts, scientists, etc. are also included. Each book concludes with a map of the solar system, a "Fact File" page, a "Find Out More" section, and other back matter. These volumes truly capture the excitement and adventure of space travel and will attract both browsers and report writers. -- Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ <i> School Library Journal, "Series Made Simple" </i> 11/1/2012

The Planetary Society blog - Emily Lakdawalla

In keeping with the series' title, the books are partially written in the second person and treat their subjects as though you, the reader, were planning a visit. It makes the text much more engaging than many fact-filled nonfiction books I've seen. The Earth book is particularly good, a thorough introduction to Earth science for younger readers. Interspersed with fact-filled sections are interviews with people working in space careers. . . .this is one series I'm keeping on my daughters' bookshelf.
