A Black Hole Is Not a Hole by Carolyn Cinami Decristofano
This book isn't going to attract mobs of readers. Personally, I am not particularly interested in black holes, but in a sense, the text created its own gravitational pull, sucking me into the science by comparing concrete concepts such as whirlpools and skaters with the energy of a black hole. This is probably the most I'll get interested in the topic. I can't wait to share this title with my grade 5 teachers for their nonfiction unit that they will be doing next year. Not to mention how it ties in with STEM. Enjoy this quick expository read.
