This book takes a tour of outer space in the form of poetry, providing information on galaxies, the universe, the sun, moon, planets, asteroids, and other elements of space. Each poem has a rhyme scheme and is accompanied by unique illustrations that include holes in the page to reveal colors on the next page. ( )

I love this book. It is so unique and is great for a science class when teaching students about the solar system. It has bigger words so it would either have to be read to a class or for older readers. it has descriptive writing The author used the words and turned them into pictures. This book could also be used for different types of poetry. ( )
