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 correct, including the facts and diagrams. Its broad appeal makes it an attractive purchase. A variety of facts about the Sun are explained clearly. Vocabulary related to the subject is defined throughout the book. Some of the vocabulary and content may be difficult for the student to read independently at this grade level. The book could be read with teacher direction so students can learn the scientific content. Actual photos and artistic effects are used to make the book appealing for students. There is a glossary, a list of suggested Internet sites, and suggested additional reading materials included." - NSTA Recommends

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
