An image of billowy towers of stars-in-formation opens this wonder-inducing science text that introduces youngsters to some awesome features of space. The book pairs science terms with compelling factoids, as about the ongoing search for life beyond Earth, as well as jokes, prehistorical notes, fun personal quizzes, games, and bits of fascinating trivia regarding planets beyond our own solar system (did you know about 55 Cancri E, the diamond planet?). There’s enough here to entertain curious minds through countless hours of upward-gazing exploration.
