Review
(The following is a combined review for Exploring Exoplanets; Exploring Space Robots; Exploring Dangers in Space: Asteroids, Space Junk, and More; Exploring Black Holes; Exploring Space Travel; Exploring the International Space Station; and ) Gr 3 – 4 — Keeping specific terms to a minimum, these titles cover their topics in broad strokes and crank up the general interest level with a relatively large photo or (more often) a dramatic artist's rendition on every page. There is significant overlap between International Space Station and Space Robots , and the effort to simplify mystifies more than it informs, as in Dangers in Space where "the largest space rock [which] is about the size of Texas," remains unidentified. Still, readers will come away with new knowledge, such as how scientists observe the behavior of other stars to infer the presence of exoplanets. Space Travel is current enough to note the end of the Space Shuttle program. --John Peters (Reviewed November 1, 2011) (School Library Journal, vol 57, issue 11, p48)
