Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-4-- A simply written account of what the Voyager probes taught us about the four giant planets and their respective rings and moons, matched with big, bright, well-chosen, full-color photographs. The writers note when computer enhancement has been used, and carefully relate pictures and text. A late entrant in a crowded field, this is an acceptable introduction to the mission, although the level of detail is a bit below that in Apfel's Voyager to the Planets (Clarion, 1991). The prominent author may attract some interest from young readers conversant with our history in space. --John Peters, New York Pub . Lib .

From Kirkus Reviews

Astronaut/scientist Ride teams up with a science teacher for a book about the Voyager spacecrafts' epic journeys. During them, they passed close enough to Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune to take detailed pictures and measurements; the result is a wealth of new information (especially about the planets' rings and moons), gorgeous color photos, and some scientific puzzles. Aimed at younger children than Harris & Weissman's The Great Voyager Adventure (1990), this includes many of the same photos. Though the book's attractive and accessible, its text lacks crisp precision: ``..the Voyagers were launched into space by two rockets.'' Each? ``Many large antennas all over the world would be needed...'' Connected together? ``...although Saturn is big, it is very light...If you could find a bucket big enough, Saturn would float...'' What would keep the gas from leaking away? Quibbles, maybe, but young readers can be very literal minded. Index. (Nonfiction. 7+) -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My 6 year old loved reading this book and learning about the Voyager expedition. Great pictures, and a lot of really specific information about all the planets and moons it encountered. A classic that should be in the library of any child or adult who loves space.
