Children's LiteratureThis is a fine introduction to our home planet and the solar system for the young reader. It is a great read-aloud and the photographs of the earth, sun and other planets of our solar system are beautiful. The author gives the reader a good foundation for understanding how our earth works. The spinning Earth makes our days and seasons and the author has added illustrations that show this for the young reader. Some basic geology principles are explained about the effects of snow, ice and water on the shape of our planet. The author has written more than two hundred science books; this expertise along with the wonderful photos from NASA make this a wonderful addition to the genre. 2003, Simon & Schuster Books for the Young Reader, Ages 3 to 8.
