To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
What a beautiful book! I purchased this for my space mad 2 year old nephew for his birthday. It’s so colourful and the illustrations are lovely. It has little facts about each planet too so it’s not just a pretty book he’ll learn something as he learn s to read. I would highly recommend it it’s great value for money!
This is a beautiful book, but I was disappointed to see it shows Pluto as a Solar System planet so information wise it's not up to date. But other than that, it's really nice and colorful and well made.
This colourful volume should provide an accessible starting point for many toddlers into the amazing world of astronomy. Starting with the Sun and Moon as the most obvious initial objects to take note of, each planet then receives attention in turn, with some simple but fascinating facts being provided to get a little one's attention. Happily, Pluto is included, correctly labelled as a dwarf planet but not left out in the cold (so to speak).
Nicely sized for a toddler's hands, construction is robust and so the book can be expected to last a while.
Such a brilliant and easy book to follow for young kids - as an introduction to planets. Perfect for little hands also. Only reason 4 stars is because my daughter is really astronauts and though the book mentions it it would have been nice to have a picture for the purpose of association and not just of the rocket!
My 22 month old loves this book. She likes to read it at bedtime and after a week she has learnt to say the names of all the planets in the solar system. Each planet has a simple feature or two that is explained (for example, Mars is red and has giant volcanoes, Neptune is dark and windy). Even I have learnt things from this book - I didn't know Uranus rotates on its side! It's a great book for introducing the concept of the planets at a young age, which I hope will help her to be curious about science and astronomy when she's older.
