Format: Hardcover
This board book for young readers has bubble illustrations for each of the planets and counts down from 8 to 1 planet, starting closest to the sun and moving out. Each page has a short description about the specific planet being profiled. It is very bright and vibrant - the colors are wonderful. My only problem is a factual error at the end of the book. It states Pluto is not a planet because it is too small. Though it was recently demoted from being a planet, it was not related to its size but because of its orbit. This misrepresentation or misinformation causes the book to lose some of its luster.

Format: Hardcover
This is a board book with cut-out holes in the pages, such that as you turn the pages, the featured planet is discussed. Then you turn the page and see one fewer planet. At the end they tell you about Neptune, and give a note that Pluto is no longer considered a planet. The planets are discussed in order of distance from the sun, but it would have been better if their location on the page followed that order. As you can see from the cover, they are randomly put on the page. A fun read!

I bought this book to teach my 2 and 3 year old children. It was a HUGE success. It is colorful, bright and easy for them to understand while other books about the solar system were far too complicated for toddlers/preschoolers. I wish there were more books in this series! A definite must have.

My 17 month old loves this book; she likes to touch the puffy planets and the rhythm of the story is good. I love the book too - it is interesting to kids, while being scientifically informative; there are important facts listed for each planet. I actually teach a high school astronomy class, and I think that they picked good facts to focus on. Well done!

I like the sturdiness of this book. My 18 month old nephew loved to touch the 3-D planets and was mesmorized by this book. Great for teaching the planets to kids.

Format: Hardcover
This is just a quick overview of the solar system. The book identifies what is special about each planet, but it's a mere short paragraph on each page. So, if you want to give your child a quick introduction to the solar system, this is great, but maybe not if your child has a really in-depth interest in space and astronomy. My son is 8 and I think he's a bit more advanced than the reading level of this book. Overall, this would be a great book for the average 7-8 year old.

I was searching for an age appropriate planet book for my three year old grandson. I found this on Amazon and because of the reviews I purchased it. My grandson has been talking about the planets at his daycare school and couldn't wait to take this book to school to share with his classmates. It is an excellent book for anyone looking for a first book on planets for a 3-5 year old.
