Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Vivid pictures and concise text help to acquaint readers with the planets in our solar system. The book first defines a planet as being a large object that orbits a star. Earth orbits the sun, the closest star to Earth, once a year. Next, the book describes the nine planets that make up the solar system. Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune and Saturn are large planets made up of gases. Earth, Mercury, Mars and Venus are smaller planets and made of rock. Pluto is the smallest planet and is made of rock and ice. A great classroom addition to inspire early readers' interest in science as the book includes striking pictures to help them understand the text. Readers may need assistance utilizing the glossary, BIBLIOgraphy, Internet sites and word list, also included in this "Out In Space" series title. 2002, Pebble Books/Capstone Press,
