Review
(The following is a combined review for What Do Astronauts Do? and What Is the Solar System?) Gr 1–3— Using a question-and-answer format, these titles offer brief, unsystematic but unusually specific information on a variety of astronomical topics. In Astronauts , fledgling readers will discover not only some of the sorts of work that is done in space, but also what's on the menu, how space travelers sleep and, of course, how one uses the potty in zero-g. The tour in Solar System begins with the sun, ends out in the Kuiper Belt and the Oort Cloud, and in between touches on the eight planets' compositions, relative sizes, and selected moons, along with glimpses of asteroids and comets. Most of the illustrations are color photos, and each volume closes with an abbreviated list of job titles (answering the question "Who studies the solar system?" in Solar System ) as well as several print and Web resources. Less- able readers in particular will be drawn to the short passages of text and simply laid out pages.—John Peters, New York Public Library --John Peters (Reviewed September 1, 2008) (School Library Journal, vol 54, issue 9, p163)
