Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
This book is a very large fold out of the solar system. Each planet is featured on a panel with facts about it, such as its size, distance from the sun, atmosphere, and the composition of the planet. The book presents the planets in the order of their distance from the sun. It also gives a few facts about the sun itself, the star at the center of our solar system. 1996 (orig.
Betty Bookmark
This book pulls out into a huge representation of our solar system. Each planet is described in detail giving distances, diameters, angles, circumferences and so on. For example, did you know that the Sun's temperature is about 15,000,000 degrees C. A great journey into the stars.

Junior Education
The author/illustrator of this book has come up with a novel method of inspiring interest in the solar system. The book opens with a full page representation of the sun, with an extended caption describing its structure, temperate and dimensions. The remaining pages have large circles cut in them, through which, as seen through a telescope in space, it is possible to view and read about each of the planets, satellites and asteroids in order of their distance from the sun. This visually compelling book with enthral and entertain readers at the top end of Key Stage 2.
Junior Focus
The book opens out like a tunnel through space, enabling readers to tour the planets. Each page contains brightly coloured illustrations and essential information about the planets, the Sun and the asteroid belt. Fun facts include the length of each planet’s year, day and its maximum distance from the Sun. This is a great book to use with the whole class.
