Reviewed with Robin Kerrod's The Solar System.
Gr. 4-6. In 10 volumes in the new Planet Library series, British astronomer Kerrod takes children on an illustrated tour of our space neighborhood, discussing the solar system, the sun, the moon, and other heavenly bodies. The Solar System begins with the formation of the Sun, the planets, their moons, and the asteroid belt. The sections that follow map and discuss the system itself. The concluding sections discuss the exploration of the solar system, the evidence for other planets orbiting stars, and the search for extraterrestrial life. Jupiter focuses on the largest planet: its formation, makeup, atmosphere, Great Red Spot, magnetism, gravity, moons, and the history of space probes that have gathered information about it. Each volume concludes with a glossary and an index. Many colorful photographs, diagrams, and artists' conceptions of scenes in the solar system appear throughout these large-format books.
