I enjoyed this book for the following different reasons: the plot and the illustrations. I enjoyed the plot because although there are many different aspects to discuss about space and our solar system, the author does a great job choosing the most relevant details. For example, when she discusses the planets, she simply states where they are in relation to the sun and their characteristics. This is great for young readers because they are able to learn to most basic and important facts about the planets without becoming confused. Additionally, the illustrations in this book were incredible. There were illustrations for all of the planets, as well as other topics that the author discussed, such as astronauts and the galaxy. The overall idea of this book is to inform young readers about characteristics of space. ( )

This book exposes young children to the understanding of the solar system based off of Dr. Seuss and his rhymes. The adventures and high times within the Solar System are included with both the main character, Sally and Max.

This is a Dr Seuss book featuring the cat in the hat that tells about all the planets in the solar system. It goes through each planet individually and tells about them and their features
I like this book, because some kids are really interested in space, and the planets and this is a good book for them. It has The Cat in the Hat, and also the humor of Dr Seuss but is also very informational. The kids will have so much fun reading it they won't even realize they are learing!

There's No Place Like Space is a fun and simple way of learning facts about the planets. This book would be a great way to introduce learning about space in a science class. I recommend it to prek-3 grade. ( )

Dr. Seuss teaches about space! Highly recommended for k-2nd grades during a solar system unit! ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679891153, Hardcover)

The perfect first space book for those almost-readers, There's No Place Like Space takes us on a whirlwind tour of our solar system, with a few constellations thrown in for good measure. Cat in the Hat (along with beloved Thing One and Thing Two) straps on his space suit and rhymes his way among the nine planets, presenting important facts along the way. Where else could your preschooler learn phonics and astronomy at same time? "A planet can have satellites that surround it. Uranus has lots of these objects around it" is just one example. This is a fine addition to the library of any young stargazer--few books are written with this many facts furnished in such an easy-reading manner. (Preschool to early reader) --Jill Lightner
