KIRKUS REVIEW

With the scope of the young reader as his guide, the skillful author of Wings in Your Future and You and Your Senses now reveals some basic facts about the world we live in and its surrounding properties, air and water, our planetary neighbors beyond, the solar system, and the stars in distant space. He deals too with the tools the astronomer employs to glean all this and with some of the problems emerging in space travel. Mr. Schneider sees the magnitude of his topic from the child's viewpoint and anticipates and answers such questions as ""Why doesn't the solar system fall apart?"" Experiments offered for reader participation will bring him closer to these concepts in astronomy as will Gustave Schrotter's diagrams and photographs.
