found it a little too wordy and the child (4yrs) to whom it was read, is very interested in the solar system.was losing interest toward the conclusion. Perhaps more geared to 5 year olds

I bought this book for my grandson who is just 3 months shy of turning 4. He is very intelligent and enjoyed our reading this book to him. After we read the book, we asked him questions about what we had read and it was amazing what he had absorbed and how well he understood it.

The series is well written and easy for all ages to understand and enjoy while learning. I am so happy I sent them to my grandchildren. They truly listen intently and if they miss something or have a question......I have the correct information in front of me to help them understand.

'The Planets in Our Solar System' is a fun way to teach children about the solar system. My students enjoyed all of the fun facts. Also check out ¿Arty the Part-Time Astronaut¿ which includes a CD. The two books made a great way to introduce the solar system to my class.
