Synopses & Reviews
Where is the earth? Where is the sun? Where are the stars? Me and My Place in Space takes on the simplest questions about the universe and gives answers that young children can easily understand. Using clear language, drawings, and diagrams, space unfolds before a child's eyes. With our world as the starting point, we are taken on a tour past each planet and on to the stars--all through the eyes of a young girl. Colorful illustrations, filled with fun and detail, give children a lot to look for on every page. A glossary, included for further information, helps to provide an enjoyable, easy-to-read, and easy-to-use introduction to the universe.
Following the successful model of Me on the Map, the same young girl character uses simple language, her own childlike drawings, and diagrams to explain how the moon, sun, earth and the other planets are all a part of the our solar system, how that solar system is a part of the universe, and where they all are in relation to each other. Clear, colorful, detailed artwork, changing perspective, and a glossary help make space understandable to very young readers.
