Zoom Into Space

And how come if you lived on Mercury, you would get a birthday every 88 days? Zoom Into Space takes young readers on a high-interest, accessible exploration of the solar system. The books combine solid science, technology, and even math with up-to-the-minute information, odd and often quirky facts, plenty of surprises and teachable moments, and astounding space photography. Children are fascinated by space, and in this new series the marvels of our solar system are brought to life with a feeling of excitement that will engage young readers and build on their sense of wonder and curiosity.
