Good general astro books for a 7 year old?

The Night Sky by Carole Stott, also a Doring Kindersley book, might be a better choice.

1. Night Sky by Carole Stott. This one looks just about right. Maybe a little over her head if she was reading it alone but not too much.
2. Stars and Planets by Ian Ridpath. A lot over the head of a 7 year old but it should be great in a very few years if she does get interested in astronomy.
3. There's No Place Like Space by Tish Rabe. A nice little Hat in the Cat book that would be a little more suited for a younger reader.
4. Space in 30 Seconds by Clive Gifford. This is the one that looks best to me. Lots of drawings rather than photographs and the text is aimed at a higher level than Cat in the Hat. I'll quiz her on the Big Bang, Super Nova, the Solar System, etc. and see how she does. Maybe I'll understand the Big Bang a bit better also.
I have 2 other books on order (thanks rookie) and I'll let you know how she likes all of them. I may be going a bit overboard here.
Thanks for everyone's input!
