Publisher Description:

Where is it partly cloudy and 860 degrees Fahrenheit? Venus! This classic picture book is a fascinating exploration of space written by children's nonfiction veteran and former chairman of the American Museum of Natural HistoryHayden Planetarium Franklyn M. Branley and illustrated by Kevin O'Malley. Full of interesting facts about the eight planets in our solar system, including our very own Earth, this bestselling book also features photographs from Voyager and other space explorers.

Now rebranded with a new cover look, this book features a find out more section with instructions for making your own solar system mobile and web research prompts about how to track the moon. Both text and artwork were vetted for accuracy by Jurrie van der Woude of NASA.

This is a Level 2 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out, which means the book explores more challenging concepts perfect for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. Let's-Read-and-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.

Category Description for Let's Read and Find Out Science:

These are favorites at our house! Mark is extremely science-oriented (and Janine seems to be following in his footsteps). He spends hours pouring over Visual Dictionaries and Wildlife Encyclopedias and watching Wonders of God's Creation and other science videos. He is really quite knowledgeable for his age. While it is no surprise that he liked these science books also, I was surprised that they were not too "simple" for him, with the availability of all those adult-level books. Much can be absorbed from these - they illustrate and explain advanced concepts at levels children can appreciate. The narrative is a blend of story and information and the illustrations (including visual aids such as colorful charts, maps and diagrams) are appealing and uncluttered. Each book introduces a science concept, then provides a step-by-step explanation within a clearly-written narrative. You may be able to find some of these at your library, but we decided that these were "keepers."
