Amy Sklansky and Stacey Schuett give young explorers the moon and stars and beyond!

The mysteries of the universe and the science of space exploration are perennialy popular subjects, and Out of This World is a wonderful introduction. Amy Sklansky has written evocative poems about planets and stars and rockets and moon landings and satellites. Each poem is supported by additional facts and explanations in the margins. Stacey Schuett brings it all to life with color-soaked skies and beautiful perspectives in her fabulous paintings. 

Space is a subject too grand for poetry or prose alone, so this book offers both to help readers truly appreciate our place in space.
