About the book:

The Reader's Digest
Children's Atlas of the Universe

will revolutionize the way kids learn about the stars. Combining spectacular color art (including maps of the planets) and hundreds of photographic images from space missions and telescopes, the atlas tells the story of the universe as it has never been told before.

Every page is a storehouse of riveting, up-to-the minute information. Introductory sections cover Earth's place in space, the history of astronomy and space exploration, and modern observatories and space travel. The atlas then visits each of the planets of our solar system in turn, along with asteroids, comets, and meteors, before proceeding to the stars and galaxies of deep space. Included are detailed star charts for both Northern and Southern Hemisphere stargazers, a universe fact file, a glossary, and an index. Activities and projects provide a hands-on approach to understanding the principles of astronomy.

The Reader's Digest Children's Atlas of the Universe continues the high standard in children's reference publishing established by The Reader's Digest Children's Atlas of the World. For children of all ages, this beautifully produced volume is the ultimate resource for learning about the mysteries of the universe.
