Magic Tree House Research Guide: Space presents a lot of interesting information about space in a fun, easy-to-read format that is accessible to younger readers. As a child, I was very interested in the solar system and space travel. For a time, I studied and followed space travel very closely, and this book was like a nice walk down memory lane. There were a few notable omissions from the book though, such as the Pioneer and Voyager interstellar space probes, Mars

Magic Tree House Fact Tracker: Space, is a book by Will Osborne and Mary Pope Osborne. The book is all about space. It talks about astronomers like Ptolemy, Copernicus, and Galileo. The book tells about our solar system, the sun, planets, and the moons. In addition, the book tells about space travel, and living and working in space.

There are many interesting facts in this book. One fact is that Sputnik, the first space satellite, was the size of a beach ball! Another fact is that space has no g

So far I am on page 49 of Space. Space is a wonderful book! The book starts out with and intersting introduction it talks about Astronomy and how we have always wondered about the sky. It also has so many fun facts like the word solar come from Sol (ancient Roman God of the sun), it take the sun's heat eight minutes to reach the Earth, one light year is 5,880 billion miles,that when the sun grows older it will become a red giant star and so much more! I am about to read more into detail about th ...more

I really think that space is really cool especially since the sun is so hot and so far away from Earth, and it gives all that heat onto Earth. What do you think of that? Isn't that cool that the sun gives all this heat from a very, very, very far distance and that sun waves coming from inside of the sun vibrate on the outside of the sun? I think that space has many secrets to it, and speaking of space, there's a show called Sailor Moon that I think you would want to watch. Unless you are really ...more

This is a great book to introduce the basics about space and astronomy to children. It really complements the book Midnight On The Moon and once again, I'm surprised at how much our girls enjoyed reading it, since it's not a story. They are eager to read more of the Research Guides!

Space- By Will Osborne and Mary Pope Osborne
From this book, I learnt a lot about astronomy and the solar system. It was all spelt out in a very simple way, but was fun to read. From it I have learnt a mnemonic, how to remember all the planets names in order from the sun without fault, using the first letter of each planet - My Very Eager Mother Just Served Us Nine Pickles. But because Pluto isn’t a planet anymore I had to change it slightly to, My Very Eager Mother Just Served Us Nachos. It was

I didn't find space particularly interesting when I was in second grade, but I forced myself to read through this book the first time, continued to read through it over and over, and still remember all the knowledge I've learned to this day, more than six years later. Surprisingly, this information has seriously saved me in scattered little situations and moments that I still marvel upon. I have no idea why I forced myself to read through it the first time, but I am so tremendously glad that I d ...more

This book has amazing facts about space. It shows all the planets in our solar system. It also says who were the first people to go in space or land on the moon.
Some of the planets are Venus, Mercury, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune, Saturn, and Pluto. Some people think that Pluto should not be a planet.

I really like this book. I would rather read about sea monsters but this is good too. You should read this book if you want to know all about space.

The Magic Tree House Research Guides are conversational nonfiction that could be paired with books from the Magic Tree House series. These are great choices for kids looking for recreational reading. The books include an index, a list of further resources (including books, websites, and more), and tips for kids doing their own research.
This is the second Magic Tree House Research Guide that I have read and I loved it. Will and Mary Pope Osborne did a fantastic job of explaining some rather complex space concepts in a way that intermediate age students on up can enjoy and learn from. The book is a little bit dated since it was published in 2002, and scientists have done things such as land a prob on Mars. I would love if the Osbornes would revise this book sometime in the future with updated information.
Reading Level: intermediate and up

This is a great resource for both students and teachers. It allows students to find out the facts about our solar system. It is put in simple terms that are easily understood. I love the pictures that compare the sizes of solar system members to items that students readily know. This book is a great companion to any science fiction book about our solar system.

My 6-year-old and I read this book together. Not only was it educational for him, it was a good reminder of things that I learned in elementary school, plus I learned new things. This book is good for any child interested in space even if your child has not read the corresponding Magic Tree House book.

I hated science as a kid. I'm not that much more interested in it as an adult. You can't even get adult me excited about a movie where Matt Damon manages to survive on Mars. How hard do you think it was to get kid me interested in space? (Hint: Impossible.) I'm not even sure why I would have read this book.

This book was very informative. It was full of great facts presented in a way that was fun for young children. A great book for children who like the Magic Tree House series and are also interested in learning about space.

Even though this book is dated (copyright 2002), it provides a good overview and will be of interest to young readers. Even though, Pluto is included as a planet; there were already many scientists who felt it was not a planet because it was the same size as it's moon, Charon.

Great companion book to 'Midnight on the Moon' - the adventure that sends Jack and Annie into the future and to the moon to find something to help their friend Morgan LaFaye. I love a book that will back up the story with truth and facts about the story itself. Fun.

Well I'm sure it was an good book. What I liked about it was reading about the planets and some planets are the biggest and some the smallest but at least I learned a lot. My most favorite was the Planet Mars. Since it has the red spot.

At least Pluto is still called a planet? Too much theory in regards to origins of things. I'd rather these books just stuck with facts.

Read it to my girls as part of our science unit. There was a paragraph of evolution that was unnecessary, but it was an easy, age-appropriate read on space.
The Research Guides are great supplements to the books. I've even used some of them for school projects, including this one.
