Editorial Review

A Review of "Wonders of Space" in School Library Connection

Cover: The Mars Rovers

Each of the books in this series is quite astonishing for its intriguing presentation of facts about unknown worlds light-years away. Every space mission, starting in 1977 with Gary Flandro’s vision from JPL for a ‘Grand Tour of Space’ with Voyager, and various other remarkable stories of exploration and problem solving are told. Each is beautifully crafted and written specifically to engage the reader, which is unusual for non-fiction. Additionally, with only 3-4 chapters, color photos, plenty of white space, and an easily readable font, students will find the astonishing content both accessible and fascinating. Death-defying acts of bravery and ingenuity by both astronauts and ground crews populate the pages with jaw-dropping reality. This series is a must-buy for librarians and teachers who wish to inspire children to dream big, study STEM subjects, and become the next generation of innovators in space. Glossary. Index. Source Notes.
