Editorial Review

A noteworthy review of Blast Off to Space from School Library Journal on April 1, 2021

Cover: Dwarf Planets

This eight-book series incorporates a broad range of subjects related to astronomy. Each book contains three or four chapters with many vibrant, full-page photographs. The length of the text and amount of data included in each title make it a good choice for first book reports or as a source for research projects. Space Missions is the only title in which the coverage is a bit superficial, possibly to sanitize it for the young audience. The first chapter, ‘Missions with People,’ only offers success stories without any reference to the astronauts who have lost their lives. A glossary, ‘to learn more’ and ‘Out of this world!’ sections, and index are included. VERDICT The variety of the topics make this series a worthwhile purchase.
