My child loves this book. The illustrations are lovely and fun, but it also contains useful information to learn about the solar system. I will be purchasing more books from this author.

I got this for my 2yr old and he showed no interest in this book. Looking for one with more realistic illustrations. This one just didn’t work out for us ended up returning.

This book is colorful and keeps baby’s interest over and over again. It gives a simple fact about each planet. Baby looooves this book and can recognize each planet and tell us about each one, even when asked out of order. We love the whole series, but especially this book and ‘How Do Apples Grow?’ We read both of them many times each week.

My 2.5 year old toddler son is very interested in the solar system since he knows all of his plants. This book is perfect with very colorful pages and keeps his interest with the simple facts.

We've had this book for a year now and we still read it at least once a week. My toddler loves it and knows most, if not all of her planets now. She's two and can name and point out the sun, moon, earth, and other planets. It's also helped her learn about colors and shapes. The book is in great condition and I would reccommend to anyone.

Bought this for my nephew who just turned 6. Really liked the book, especially since it included Pluto (which is totally a planet).

This book will surely be my son's new favorite. The pages are vibrant and sturdy, and the story is informative and fun. They even included Pluto. (mentioning that it's a dwarf planet and smaller than our moon) The illustrations are creative and colorful and sure to catch the eye of any child.

This is a colorful and very interesting read. The planets are slightly cartoonish but my toddler doesn't seem to mind.
