School Library Journal - 04/01/2020 Gr 3–6—Titles in this series cover space objects and phenomena, as well as space technology. Whether readers are fascinated by black holes or the inner workings of the International Space Station, the text is engaging. Vivid images capture readers' imagination. Photos and images show planets, astronauts, and technology such as robots, rovers, and rockets. The image captions provide extra information. Glossary terms are found in bold print throughout the text. The use of augmented reality adds to the reading experience by offering sights such as 3-D models of the space station or a 360-degree view of the lunar surface. 1:1 schools especially will make the most of this feature. Links in the back matter provide directions to create 3-D printed models of the James Webb Space Telescope, the Curiosity Rover, and more. VERDICT An excellent purchase to update collections and support makerspaces. - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
