These two nonfiction books provide entertaining and interesting explorations of natural science. Narrator Oliver Wyman, along with an ensemble cast of questioning youngsters, reads these books in a way that presents sometimes difficult material without talking down to readers. Don't Know Much About Space looks at the planets, the stars, and the history of astronomy. Don't Know Much About Planet Earth is an in-depth introduction to geography and cartography. Both of these are worthy programs for the 8 to 15-year-old crowd, whether as edifying distractions or as supplements to schoolwork. S.E.S. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 02]
