Wrapped in Foil blog - Roberta

"...a visually-stimulating way to learn about our sun, the planets, moons and even far away galaxies. . . .This encyclopedia isn’t meant to be read cover-to-cover, although children certainly might want to do that. Instead, they can review a few of the over 100 concepts and vocabulary words found in the book, and come back as needed." - Wrapped in Foil blog
