The non-fiction books about introductory space topics on the market today generally skew towards children in upper elementary school. There is very little available for kids who require something more basic.

Earth, Stars, Moon, and Sun are an exception. These are lovely little non-fiction books for emerging readers or just for kids who want to learn facts in a read-aloud and look at thoughtfully chosen photos of space-related things.

The text is very simple and introduces science concepts nicely.

I would use this book for a lesson on the solar system or in differentiating what we see at night versus the day. The condition for using this book is that the book must be explained as simply as possible. The language of the book isn't difficult to understand but the concepts may be above the heads of Kindergarten students. I would take more of a picture walk to show the students real photos of stars and briefly talk about simple concepts about a star.
Recommended grade level: K and up
