Where is the earth?  Where is the sun?  Where are the stars?

Now in a Dragonfly edition, here is an out-of-this world introduction to the universe for children.  With earth as a starting point, a young astronaut leads readers on a tour past each planet and on to the stars, answering simple questions about our solar system. In clear language, drawings, and diagrams, space unfolds before a child's eyes.  Colorful illustrations, filled with fun and detail, give children a lot to look for on every page and a glossary helps reinforce new words and concepts. A terrific teaching tool, Me and My Place in Space is an easy and enjoyable way to introduce the concept of space to the very youngest astronomers.

From Our Editors

How do you explain why the sun shines in the sky by day and the moon nestles close to the stars at night? Teaching kids about the wonders of the universe can be difficult, but Joan Sweeney and illustrator Annette Cable make it easier for you with Me and My Place in Space. Complete with a glossary of terms, this resource follows a young girl as she takes a fascinating intergalactic voyage.
