Another one for the science section of the classroom library. The illustrations are wonderful as is the information. A good book to integrate with astronomy lessons or related text sets.

This book details much about the known universe and explains it in way that is easy to understand. It has wonderful pictures. It discusses star formation, galaxies, black holes, and supernova. This book is geared more towards higher grade levels. I can see using a portion or topic of this book as a jumping off point but no using the entire book for a lesson. ( )

This book has some amazing images, my favorite is the picture of Saturn. The information about the planets and spacial events is more for older readers, but could be used with many groups because of the interesing picture.
