I bought this book for my 5 year old nephew's bday. My sister called to thank me for the book. My nephew loves the "Space Book" and has her reading it with him every day. He especially loves the section about Mars. Apparently, there's a pic of a Martian that's so interesting...lol....The pictures of the planets are wonderful and my nephew sits still thru the whole book... Great purchase...

This book is loaded with great illustrations. I liked the organization and the numerous details provided for each planet. Age appropriate language for students between Kinder and 3rd grade. It also features suggested activities that kids would enjoy. Seller's description was great and the book shipped and arrived in a timely manner.

I bought this as a gift for a grandson, and ended up with a second copy, so I took that to my classroom of first and second graders. It is currently on of the more popular books in the room. It is very readable for my young students, illustrations are well done. A must for young scientists.
