Breathtaking photography and clear, informative text are this prolific author's trademarks. Designed to give children a better understanding of the universe and its many elements, this series presents our universe in an intriguing and easy to understand way, without skimping on information. Each book encompasses a different topic, so you can pick and choose to fit your student's interests. The books are full of illustrations; they often even contain full pages devoted to depicting the topic. Although these books are not written from a Christian perspective, they mostly stick to just the scientific without getting into theory. The space-oriented books may mention evolution briefly to explain age and beginnings, but they tend to leave it to speculation. However, in Our Solar System, the author does try and explain how our solar system was formed, and this is explained through evolution. The books run about 30 pages, except Our Solar System, which is quite a bit longer. - Melissa
