The Book

This book is a lovely introduction for little ones regarding our planets.  "Planets" combines humour and science facts as readers launch on an incredible journey across the solar system. 

The author highlights what it might be like to live on   another planet.  How about Venus?  Well, it is covered in volcanoes spewing out horrible, eggy, sulphurous smoke. I wouldn't want to live there would you?  Let's try Mars.  It has a rocky, red surface, and is the most similar planet to our own... but it has no gravity.  If you tried to eat your dinner there it would get very messy and fly right off your plate.  Not fun to live there either, right?  Let's check out Uranus?  It has a solid surface but it's the coldest planet in the solar system.  Temperatures reach as low as -224 degrees Celsius. Nope can't live there.  The author takes you from planet to planet and describes their unique features.  Can you guess the best planet to live on?  I bet you can.  

The illustrations are bold, colourful and visually enhance the text.  The book is engaging and is a wonderful way to introduce little minds to BIG ideas!  I know kids will love it.
