Annotation: "Pieces of Another World" is the touching story of a father and child's nighttime excursion to watch a meteor shower as told through the eyes of the child who is in awe of the night world. The vivid descriptions make the readers feel as though they, too, are watching the tiny bits of other, distant worlds blazing into our own. The "For Creative Minds" educational section in the back of the book includes a comet cookie edible craft and lots of teaching trivia to help children learn more about meteors, comets and asteroids. There are also "Learning Links" and "Teaching Activities" on Sylvan Dell's website, www.SylvanDellPublishing.com, to help educators use the books in their classrooms and libraries.
