G Is for Galaxy: An Out of This World Alphabet Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Aspiring astronauts, star gazing astrophysicists, and even toddlers pointing at the moon will now have the right stuff for exploring our galaxy. With rhymes for younger children and their accompanying fact-filled expository test for older readers, syndicated Yak's Corner columnists Janis Campbell and Cathy Collison shuttle us through an out of this world alphabet as seen through the windshield of a space ship.

Each page answers galactic questions like: What planet is 300 times heavier than Earth? Why is space the ultimate place to study? Which planet is closest to the sun and which one is the farthest? Who said, That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind?

Review:

"The authors deftly cover a variety of astronomy-related topics, including the Big Bang, Earth, lunar footprints, Edmund Halley, sound in space, and many others....This is one alphabet book that will keep readers coming back." Children's Literature
