"Titles in this series explore our solar system's planets and the sun. The short chapters present information for readers, and key terms are boldfaced to alert the reader that a word is important. Tidbits of history are interspersed with all the expected facts about planets. Students would find the pictures in the books the most useful. The photographs are excellent and the information and organization is solid."

"All the above volumes are well written in an engaging style and contain much current material and facts that will be of interest to the target audience... The design of this series is to be commended for its uniform approach and the addition of such excellent tools as the glossary, index and reading suggestions that are often omitted in books for this audience. While this reviewer finds the writing of very high quality and the research also excellent,.. the purpose is clear, the material is well organized and the processes of science are clearly and accurately presented."
