Gr. 7-12. Rich with full-color photographs, diagrams, and drawings, each volume in the Backpack Books series is engaging, well-thought-out, and accessibly written. Illustrations dominate each spread, which focuses on a high-interest fact, with information presented in short text boxes. Space features illustrations of the different types of galaxies and introduces such topics as pulsars and stellar classification. Human Body discusses everything from the structure of a synapse to why someone sneezes. The books are a little bit larger than pocket-size (hence the series name), so the illustrations are rather small; but the photos are crystal clear, as are the many diagrams. These are general overviews, but they contain enough specifics to answer many questions, and the engaging topics will draw readers. Each volume ends with a glossary and a reference section with even more information. A good series to round out general science collections. Heather Hepler
