Why does everyone want to go to Mars and not Venus? Spark early readers' natural curiosity about planets with this inquiry-based nonfiction approach to Venus.

Venus is sometimes called Earth's twin planet – its evil twin. Did you know Venus is so hot that metal melts on its surface? And if the heat doesn't burn you up, the atmospheric pressure would crush you. Perfect for self-selection and early reports, this question-and-answer book covers Venus' appearance and features, plus missions to the planet.

A Quick Facts chart provides fast facts while simple infographics support visual learners. A Stay Curious! Learn More feature encourages kids to keep asking questions while doubling as a mini media literacy lesson on research skills. Includes glossary and index.
