Description
Did you know that a comet is like a big, rocky snowball with a tail of gas and dust millions of miles long? Or that an asteroid can be as small as a car, or as big as a mountain? These and dozens of other fascinating facts provide a perfect high-interest introduction to the icy, rocky voyagers of the solar system that so often hit the headlines: Comets, Meteors, and Asteroids. Filled with information perfectly suited to a second-grade audience, this accessible, high-impact book combines solid science, technology, and even math with up-to-the-minute information, odd and often quirky facts, and astounding space photography. It also provides plenty of surprises and teachable moments that will draw young children into a rewarding, kid-friendly reading experience.
