Review:

The breezy, unconventional approach makes this a promisingly engaging way to introduce, or re-introduce, our celestial neighbors.- School Library Journal

Although not a -hard science- book about the planets, this fun romp will engage students as to how the planets have shaped human art, history, architecture, mythology, and religion. - Library Media Connection

A simple introduction to our solar system for very young audiences, this appealing little book should be a big hit with the lower elementary grade levels. The illustrations are cute and colorful. The text contains interesting facts that are appropriate for first and second graders. - Science Books & Films
