Summary and Info
48 pages, Grade 3-8 - An exciting title for the astronomic-oriented, this book updates readers about our solar system from nine planets to eleven and the easy-to-follow reclassifications of them: Rocky/Terrestrial: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars; Gas planets: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Dwarf planets: Ceres(new), Pluto and Eris(new). In double pages, 11 PLANETS presents each planet with illuminating photographs, digital paintings, and many visually impressive artworks and fast fact charts as well as paragraphs of texts that both informs and delights. The memory trick to remember the new planets in order among many other humorous lines makes my kid laugh really hard. We have never learnt so much so fast about our solar system and author/illustrator David A. Aguilar has brought the planets from the sky to our fingertips in the most fascinating way.
