All of [Branley's books are] remarkably informative. A Book of the Milky Way Galaxy for You gives a fascinating and understandable explanation of how vast distances are measured. The Sun: Star Number One and The Earth: Planet Number Three are fuller and more advanced than books on similar subjects by [Herbert] Zim, but the style … [makes] them comprehensible and fascinating…. The Branley books are well written and have made a brilliant contribution to children's science interests, especially in the field of astronomy. (p. 292)
