DeCristofano, Carolyn Cinami A Black Hole is Not a Hole. Charlesbridge, 2012. $18.95. Content: G. PICTURE BOOK.
A black hole is NOT a hole – at least not the kind you can dig in the ground or poke your finger through. So, if a black hole is NOT a hole…what is it, where do they come from, how were they discovered, what make a black hole so powerful, where’s the nearest black hole and can I visit one? These as well as many others will be answered in this book.
This book is information based yet enjoyable to read with lots of pictures. It includes a glossary, time line, author’s notes and resources. This would be a great book for an introduction or companion when teaching a science unit on Black Holes.
