From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-2-- Keller's clean-lined color illustrations (supplemented by a pair of photos) provide pleasant, sometimes fanciful accompaniment to this simple essay on the origin and nature of meteors. Branley's suggestions that young readers "lie down and gaze at the sky for an hour or so" may not be generally taken, but, as usual, his discussion is full of clearly stated, easily grasped facts and ideas: the fact that "a shooting star is not a star," the chances of being hit (not unlikely, since some airborne dust is extraterrestrial) or hurt (astronomical), some famous close encounters, and the like. This fresh look at a popular subject will be equally at home in the astronomy section and on the picture-book shelves. --John Peters, New York Public Library
