As soon as we opened this book, my inquisitive 5-year-old was hooked. It is filled with interesting facts about our solar system, written on a level just perfect for ages 4-8 (the target age group for these books). The pictures and graphics are rich and colorful. I bought "Ocean", too, and now we often read these books instead of good-night stories. Each 2-page spread contains so much to see and discuss that it takes the place of a standard good-night story.

Here's an example: "A planet's year is the time it takes to make one full journey (orbit) around the Sun.... Planets with the biggest orbits have the longest years." For a kid who is just beginning to comprehend how long a year is, it's interesting to toy with the idea that a "year" is a different amount of time on each planet. Ok, it's a stretch, and I don't think my 5-year-old really understood, but that's just one example of the types of things we sit and talk about after looking at this book. Fun!

So if your child is curious about the sun, moon and planets, I would really recommend this book. (Even for older kids, frankly. My mother and I both enjoy it and learned from it. And it's much more interesting to read and look at than a typical story book.)

I purchased this book for a four year old boy and he loved it. The pictures are excellent and the descriptions are brief and accurate (enough for a four year old). This is a great supplement book for the price. Yes, there are better space books out there.

My three year old daughter LOVES the moon, stars, planets, and all things astronomical. This book has plenty of quality pictures that keep her interest while we tlak about what is on the page. It also has enough information in it that as she gets older I think she will be reading the book herself for many years to come.

Bought this, along with a few others from the set, for my oldest grandson for Christmas . . . he loved it so much, I ended up buying the rest of the set for his Birthday.
All the rest of the grandchildren loved it so much . . . I am going to buy a set for each of my kids families.
AWESOME !!

Good overview for young space learners. However, this is probably not detailed enough for older children. It is from a secular world view perspective & not young earth creationism.

Concise information and lovely pictures. My 6 year old who is now all into space just sits with this book and after reading it is full of information to share with the family
