In my opinion, this is a great book for astronomy lovers because of its language and illustrations. This informational text includes both photographs and illustrations; this characteristic makes a book unique because most books usually consist of only one or the other. I like how each page in this text begins with a topic question, and then has an answer as well as other questions. For instance on page thirty two the main question is, “Why Can’t We See Stars During Daytime?” The answer is clearly marked below with a yellow word bubble that says “answer.” On the following page there is another question that states, “Why Do Stars Shine More in the Country?” There are many facts and pictures below the question that relate to the topic. The book is organized in a very random format. For instance, the table of contents has no headings, only questions and what page they are found on. I feel that this is a great informational text, but it may be hard to use for research, since the book is not divided or separated by topic. Even though the book is not perfectly organized, it still answers a large amount of astronomy questions. Some of these random questions include, “Why Do Stars Twinkle?” and “Why Is the Sky Blue?” I feel that this book is written in an interesting way to capture the reader’s attention, but it should be organized in a better way.
Overall, I feel that the main idea of this book is to answer many questions about the sky and the earth. This informational text is filled with photographs, facts, graphs, illustrations and data that is exciting and interesting. I feel that this book also pushes readers to think about astronomy and ask more questions about the topic. ( )
