Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
A parent who wishes to teach a child more about the universe needs to definitely help the child understand the many items that occupy our galaxy. This book would be excellent because a young child will not be skilled enough to gather information from a text only book. However, this is an illustrated guide of the cosmos that will show beautiful and artistically created pictures that will stick in the mind of a child. This also allows the child to ask questions of the parent, which can involve the child and parent in important bonding and learning that is essential.

It shows and explains a huge variety of info that is very intriguing to kids. I have to admit, I think I learned this all in one of my early college classes, but forgot most of it, so it was a great refresher for me. The pages give little one or two sentences about each concept that were easy to understand for 5 year olds and up I think. Example: “Galaxies are often found in groups or clusters. One cluster may have 30 or so galaxies in it.” And the concept is over a picture of a galaxy. The concepts included, the Milky Way, Gamma Ray Bursts, Solar Flares, stars, Black Holes, the moon, galaxies, which stars are brightest, planets in the solar system, magnetic fields, each planet, Dwarf Planets, etc.
I couldn’t answer any follow up questions my nephews presented, but I used their questions as a springboard to look it up. The book says, “The future of the Universe may depend on how much dark matter there is. If there is too much…” And of course, my nephew asks, “What is dark matter?” Ummm… aside being dark? And matter? But I wanted to answer so, since the book is a Kindle eBook it was easy to toggle over to a browser to look up the questions while we were looking at the book. I’m new at the whole – use technology to teach your kids – concept, but I’m getting the hang of it through books like this. Reading normal books in the past I’ve always have to postpone answering or skirt the question. But with Kindle books, just toggle over! It provides a whole new dynamic to book learning with kids.
I received this product for free or at a discount in exchange for an honest review. There is no incentive to leave positive feedback. This is my honest opinion of the product and I had fun exploring and learning the info with my nephews. I hope my experience helps!
My SO says (he's the visual reviewer since I went blind) the pictures and images are absolutely fantastic and captivating. He says the text is a tad bit small and might he better served having a caption on the picture, ie "the Milky Way" and having the rest of the text on an opposing page. This book isn't for very young children because of the sophistication of the vocabulary. Sometimes words should probably be defined like supernovae. Some things should probably be explained like what Voyager 2 is and perhaps when it launched, general path, etc. The identical text and picture for Voyager 2 occurs twice in the book for an unknown reason.
The order of the pictures and text appears to be random and not well thought out. Some orders suggest themselves by reading what's included - for example all material mentioning the Milky Way could be together. The only exception to the disorder is the part that mentions something about each planet, The text beginning with "The brighest stars..." is repeated twice over two different images.
This book does have some good images and some interesting facts. It's probably best for kids who already grasp basically what planets, supernovae and the like are, though you undoubtedly can do better than this book for them. You could use it as a learning opportunity - ask them how they'd order the book, what terms and things need more explanation or defining and have them research it. I received this book at a free or discounted rate in exchange for my honest review.

Thanks for reading my review.
- This book is packed with interesting and educational facts about the cosmos (planets, black holes, stars, and so much more).
- The facts are very informative, yet short enough to hold the attention of kids.
- Images that accompany each fact are really helpful. My son loved referencing the image with what he was learning about.
- Some of the imagery was so beautiful that it was worthy of being framed and placed on a wall. Others were more cartoonish (my son didn't mind that one bit though).
- For children who live in the US, you may find it a bit difficult to understand some of the terminology that's written using the metric system (kilometers, Celsius)
- The text portion on each page seems un-alligned slightly. The text to the far left runs into the 'text box' border. On the longer facts, both sides ran into the border.
- The font is on the smaller side, so it's a bit of a strain to the eyes, unless you zoom in to enlarge it. A size or two up in font size would have complimented the book nicely.
- The term "I-Spy" is a bit misleading as most people associate this with the finding game. There is nothing to hunt for in this book. It is purely facts and information.
Overall, my son enjoyed this book and learned a lot.
