Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-3–These stimulating volumes each cover one planet’s internal and external structures, major moons (if any), and significant visits by space probes; Pluto also includes mentions of three other recently designated or discovered dwarf planets. The books in this series open with lists of words to look out for in the narrative, include picture captions that restate information in the accompanying text or even ask questions about it, and close with multimedia resource lists, as well as suggestions for adults on good ways to share and discuss books. Fleisher offers some uncommon information, noting for example that Venus’s day is longer than its year. The books are enhanced with mixes of space art and photography that has been reproduced with special attention to image sharpness and color clarity.
