Out of this world
OUT OF THIS WORLD: POEMS AND FACTS ABOUT SPACE by Amy E. Sklansky with illustrations by Stacey Schuett. Knopf, 2012.
Skillful blending of fiction and nonfiction is always something to celebrate. These short poems are accompanied on facing pages by information about various aspects of space such as planets, comets, meteors, and the like. The poems take many shapes; some are rhymed, others unrhymed. Science teachers will certainly appreciate this book. <512>
