Grade 4-7-Readable texts, good illustrations, and eye-catching page layouts contribute to the appeal of these attractive titles. In the first book, Kerrod discusses the Moon's origin and physical description, its orbit and phases, its effect on tides, its craters, eclipses, and its exploration, with an emphasis on the Apollo missions. There are also good-quality maps of the Moon's surface. Seymour Simon's Moon (Four Winds, 1984; o.p.) is not as detailed, but its text is more unified and moves more smoothly from start to finish. The second book covers the origin of our solar system, the types of planets and other celestial objects, their orbits, the difference between planets and stars, gas giants and terrestrial planets, the exploration of the solar system, and the possibility of other solar systems and the search for extraterrestrial life. Both books feature charts with factual data and helpful diagrams. These flashy, up-to-date titles will serve as excellent starting points for astronomy reports.
