       I really like Usborne books, but this is one is a favorite. Intended for a younger audience, this 8-page, large format (9.5 x 11.75 inches) book introduces children to the world of space – the sun, planets, super stars, galaxies, space exploration, space travel, and the constellations of the night sky. All of the information is printed in small snippets, so as not to be overwhelming, and on heavier cardstock pages – and four of the pages even fold out for a grander view. Very sturdy for younger hands and the book presents just facts. There is no theory or conjecture about how it all came to be, just good information to introduce little ones to the topic of space. ~ Donna

    From Eratosthenes to Wernher von Braun, this volume looks at the exploration of our planet. The high-interest vignettes and tales of discovery include references to God and faith, where applicable. I hadn't realized before reading this book that rocket scientist Wernher von Braun was also a committed Christian. I also understand a little better now why, despite the fact that Eratosthenes virtually proved the Earth was a sphere, people clung to the belief that the Earth was flat.

    I have always been a fan of the Usborne books, and this one is no exception – you'll not be disappointed with the beautiful photography and the plethora of facts. This encyclopedia is completely focused on earth science and includes chapters on planet earth, earthquakes and volcanoes, climate, weather, plants and animals, shaping the land (soil/weathering/erosion), and rivers and oceans. Scattered throughout the book, along with the information provided, you will find recommended websites where you and your child can find out more. The pages will draw you in, no matter your age, as you learn about our planet Earth. ~ Donna

    Planet Earth is very unique, but why? Children will learn what makes our home planet, Earth, a very special place and why it is so different from the other planets in the solar system. Robert E. Wells takes readers on a journey through the universe as he explains atmosphere and climate of the planets and why you couldn't live on them. He then talks about Earth and its special features and things we can do to care for our planet. So if you're thinking about moving away from the Earth - remember the other planets aren't a good option. ~ Donna

       This book has more than stickers going for it! The book has a horizontal format. When you open it up, the sun is on the far left. The first page is little, with only Mercury on it. The second page is a little bigger with Mercury and Venus. The third page is a little bigger, showing 3 planets and so on. It’s like an adventure to turn the short pages and see the planets in sequence from the sun! Text on each page is in rhyme and fun to read out loud. Stickers fit over the planets on the pages, or you can use them for you own creations! hc, 15pp. ~ Sara

    Look out your window and stare into space (literally!) with these decoration clings. These planets are made out of a static cling vinyl that will stick to any laminated or glossy surface, including dry erase boards, table tops, file cabinets, windows, and even your refrigerator! There is a cling for each of the planets and the moon (sorry, no sun), with each cling taken from real Hubble images. These clings would be a great visual aid as you are studying the planets in earth science or going through a unit study on the solar system. The clings are removable and reusable, so your children can even use them to practice putting the planets in order! The clings come on a 12" x 17" sheet you can store them on when you're ready to put them away. - elise
