About the Author:

Gregory L. Vogt is a senior project manager with the center for educational outreach at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. His duties focus on space biomedicine, teacher training, and work with graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Vogt began his career as an eighth grade science teacher and later joined the NASA Aerospace Education Services Program. He established the Teaching from Space office at the NASA Johnson Space Center. He is a former science museum director. Vogt is an educational consultant and the author of many curriculum guides and more than 90 juvenile and adult science books.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-4-Brief but meaty introductions to the outer planets, combining seldom-seen color photos with single-page "chapters" of text. Though sometimes oversimplified, the information is a lively mix of basic facts, nonstandard background material, and recent discoveries about each planet's rings, atmosphere, physical features, and selected moons. Special terms are defined in appended glossaries, and generally in context, too; sizes, revolution and rotation periods, and distances are given both in the narrative and in accompanying charts. Each volume closes with an easily reproduced science demonstration, plus two-to-four-item lists of books, addresses, and Web sites. Though the photos have a cramped, over-enlarged look-probably due to the books' small trim size-such shots as a radiophotograph of Jupiter showing its massive magnetic fields and Hubble Space Telescope views of Pluto before and after computer enhancement will grab the attention of young space enthusiasts. Consider these above-average titles as alternatives-or better yet, companions-to equivalent volumes of "True Book" series updates (Children's).
