Space has always intrigued me. Good read. ( )
  KaraHeath | Apr 23, 2017 |
This is a great book to introduce children to the idea of space. It has simple text that is easy to understand and colorful illustrations that catch your eye. A example of what it describes is: what is the sun made of and also what are planets. ( )

Summary: This book is about the the solar system. Children can learn what the sun is made of and what the solar system contains. The book is full of color which draws attention to the reader, which is the child.
Personal reaction: The book is alright for children to learn about the solar system. I did not like it very much.
Classroom extension idea:
1.Draw the solar system as best as they can. ( )

This book will teach anyone all they need to know about space. It teaches students about all the stars, sun, and planets in outer space.

Personal Reaction:
I haven't seen a better informational book that explains space so well. Usually they are boring and can't keep anyone's attention, however, this one does the exact opposite.

Classroom Extension:
1. Let the students draw up what they think is out in outer space.
2. See if the students can name all the planets, by turning it into a fun game.
3. Have the students go home and look up at the sky at night. What all do they see? Then have a discussion with them all the next day. It'll be exciting to hear what they all saw.

This book was great for children and introducing space to them. The book contains all kinds of facts like the sun being 93 miles away from Earth. The book also talks about how the astronauts "bounce" which I thought was an interesting way to introduce the concept of gravity to children.

Personal Reaction:
I really liked this book because I loved the artwork and how they introduced facts to children about space.

Classroom Extension:
1. This book could begin great lessons for learning about space.
2. This is a great way to use artwork like making or drawing and coloring the planets and putting them in order of the solar system.
