Seymour Simon the author of over 200 science books for children. More than half of his books have been named Outstanding Science Trade Books for Children by the National Science Teachers Association. He lives in Great Neck, New York.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2-Vivid pictures and interesting facts define this easy-reader survey. Each spread gives a brief physical description of a planet (the moon and asteroids are covered as well) and provides an interesting piece of trivia pertaining to it. A black background nicely contrasts with the large-type white text. Clearly written, it has an occasional word that may prove challenging to younger audiences. In his discussion of the sun Simon says, "If Earth were the size of a basketball, the sun would be as big as a basketball court." It's unfortunate that there aren't more comparisons of size and scale like this one. The colorful close-up photographs of the planets are superb; some of them seem to have been borrowed from the author's previous works. A number-heavy planet-comparison chart is also included.
