What a GREAT book! I was looking for a book for my 3 1/2 year old that would introduce him to space in a simple way, "What's Out There" is exactly what I wanted. He is so captivated by this book, it is short, simple and easy to understand. It is perfect for him now and will be for the next several years. All of the basics are covered such as the 9 planets and their relation to the sun, how the earth travels around the sun and spins, the moon, gravity, the make-up of all the planets, asteroids etc. Each topic is explained in a fun and easy way for a child to understand and the illustrations are wonderful. Highly recommend as a first book about space!

My husband and I purchased this book for our daughter who is fascinated with astronomy. We were disappointed that it still lists Pluto as a planet and there are not rings around planets that have rings in some illustrations. I thought I had read in the description that it had been reprinted since Pluto was downgraded, but I guess it hasn't....

I bought this book for my 4 year old son to begin talking about the solar system. To my surprise, he had already learned quite a bit from Bubble Guppies! lol. This book was a great addition to his knowledge base and loves to share what he learned with various family members. The information in the book is up-to-date and written clearly and developmentally appropriately.

I bought this with the intention of reading it to my 3 yr old son who loves space and the discovery series on TV about the universe. However, in this book, the amount of text and and density of info on every page (which could be far more concise) is just too much for his age. Maybe in three more years or so this will be a good book for him. For now, it's just overload and it takes too long to read each page. He loses interest and begs for his other space book instead. It's a cute book, just not for this age.

Purchased this book for my sons 4th birthday. He loves all things space and this book was a perfect fit! We have enjoyed reading it together and we both have learned so much. Our adult friends are always impressed to hear him spout off facts he learned thru this book about space that even they didnt know! I definitely recommend this book for children who are interested in space.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book to use with my daughter's co-op preschool class. After reading it to my daughter, I knew would never use it in a preschool class. It makes something as magnificent and exciting as outerspace seem boring. It basically just tells the names of different objects in space, and very boring facts about them. It also has too many words on each page, and the pictures are pretty mundane, too.
