Via 13 two-page chapters, Space Blog takes readers on a journey through the solar system, including the Sun, Earth's Moon, Jupiter and Saturn's Moon's, plus travel into space through the asteroids. The objective of this book is to update readers on the new and recent discoveries concerning space and space travel. Such information is in high demand due to the constant changes and new discoveries in our solar system and the universe. To help visualize where the planet is situated in the solar system, each chapter has a diagram of the solar system and the planet's name is highlighted underneath for easy recognition. The author, Angela Royston, has given credibility to her work by using the NASA space agency as being a source from where her information was accumulated. Using current information, Royston provides a good explanation of the status change of Pluto in 2006:
Space Blog has a good flow of information with fun quick facts throughout. The page layout is easy to understand with lots of incredible photo shots throughout from the Hubble space telescope and from the NASA Space Center. The bold-faced text words found in the book are words found in the glossary at the end of the book.
