Praise & Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 3-7-A high-quality series that expertly conveys information about four high-interest topics. Each book starts with two statements challenging readers to figure out which is true and which is false. Then there is an introduction, four chapters, and a "Big Truth" featurette between two chapters. All titles contain up-to-date information, with the fourth chapters looking toward the future. "The Future of Space Exploration" (Human Missions to Outer Space) goes into great detail about the upcoming Artemis missions. VERDICT Highly recommended, a first purchase for middle school and public libraries.-Kacy Helwick
