Library Media Connection - Kristine Wildner, Librarian, Holy Apostles School, New Berlin, Wisconsin

"Perfect for young researchers, this new series captures the wonder of our universe, utilizing brilliant photography and a clear, concise narrative to explain key subjects.  Each book begins with a general introduction, revealing key physical factors (distance, temperature, size, and relative comparisons). Subsequent chapters discuss composition, atmosphere, and relationships to Earth. The authors keep the reader’s interest with familiar comparisons and fun facts which are directed at young children. Catching the reader’s eye and directing attention to important information, the books are laid out with contracting colors, captions and labels. This series is an excellent supplement to elementary textbooks and a strong resource for elementary research. Recommended." - Library Media Connection

NSTA Recommends - Ruth Rudd

"This book is targeted for grades 3 and 4 but it can be used with older children, especially those with reading difficulties, because of its interest and motivational value. The scientific content is accurate, including the facts and diagrams. Its broad appeal makes it an attractive purchase. Our Earth explains why the Earth is the perfect planet for life. While explaining the Earth's makeup, the author discusses the world’s biomes. The text explains about weather, the water cycle, and photosynthesis. The reader is reminded that people have a definite impact on the Earth in how they care for it. The content is presented in an easy to read manner, suitable for the elementary student. Vocabulary related to the subject is defined throughout the book, with various scientific facts presented as well. Real life photos are used throughout and artistic effects work to make the book appealing for students. There is a glossary, a list of suggested Internet sites, and suggested additional reading materials." - NSTA Recommends
