Gr 3-6--Readers embark on a guided tour of the universe, beginning on Earth and moving on to the planets of our solar system, and then to the stars and galaxies beyond. Double-page spreads briefly explain a topic (e.g., meteors, meteorites, auroras, constellations) and an engaging captioned photograph enhances the text. The writing is a varied mix of descriptive, poetic, expository, and speculative writing; the author not only shares information but provides commentary and speculation. Since this title covers multiple topics, it would appeal most to readers eager to know more facts and possible conclusions about the universe. VERDICT Recommended for astronomy enthusiasts to browse, gather information, and generate questions about the universe.--Myra Zarnowski, City Univ. of New York
