Basher Science: Astronomy, Out of this World created and illustrated by Simon Basher, Written by Dan Green:

Like a Facebook for the universe, Astronomy gives every important celestial body and concept its own page, where readers can learn its behaviors, likes, and dislikes up close and personal. From the flashy stars to the shadowy and strange objects that hang out like loners at the edges of the universe, no player goes unnoticed. Every profile has a hip anime-style portrait to round out the picture, but make no mistake: while the presentation is all style, the science is rock solid. The universe has never been so cool.

My Body
A Fun Way to Find Out All the Facts About Your Body
Hardcover      ISBN: 155407522x

Picture-packed introduction to the human body.

This book is a bundle of colorful pages, large photographs and easy-to-read type that add up to fun learning. It addresses many of the questions a child will ask about his or her body: Where is my heart? How do I remember things? What are bones made of?

Close-up color photographs, cutaway diagrams and clear text make complex ideas easy to understand. Each spread also features an activity that reinforces a concept and encourages further learning.

The author efficiently covers a wide variety of topics. The chapter on the brain, for example, is divided into such sections as Senses, Quick as a Flash and Feelings. The chapter on the digestive system explains why we burp and features an activity that uses string to show how long the digestive system is.

Designed to be read alone or shared with friends or parents, My Body is a fun way to engage children's curiosity about the human body, particularly their own.
