Tell Me Earth and Sky
One thing anyone who spends time with children knows is that what they all have in common is curiosity. Books that can help kids answer their endless questions are always a bonus. This wonderful book is filled with over 200 questions and the answers to them. Each spread in the book has four questions with cute illustrations for each. All are laid out on grid paper with tiny related illustrations around the edges. The writing is fun and kid-friendly but filled with real, useful information. The four tabbed sections cover The Universe, The Solar System, The Earth, and Humans. The questions cover such things as, “What will happen if an asteroid smashes into the Earth?” and “When will the Sun burn out?” and “What did the men do on the Moon?” This is a book that can take what kids have to dish out. It is printed on glossy card stock and spiral bound inside a heavy hardcover with an elastic band built in to keep it closed. Two pages of space-related stickers in the back are a fun bonus. This is a great book for a car trip or just to keep youngsters busy and learning. It’s a winner!
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
