It is nice book, I love it because I like the space and science and stuffs like.
and I like that book because it's talking about space and planets, that kind of book give me a lot of information like the size of planets, temperature and climate, the distance between planets.

That book has old pictures that is real, and it's not like today (like example) because today Pluto has a clear pictures, and in the book it's old and not real.
But the drawing pictures are good, because it is closer to truth

Pengantar yang cukup lengkap, terutama untuk anak-anak. Penjelasannya cukup sederhana, disertai berbagai trivia menarik, dan ilustrasi yang tak kalah menarik. Gambar-gambarnya yang besar sangat menambah ketertarikan akan kontennya.

My 5 year old chose this from the library and really enjoyed it. The language was a little beyond her but the pictures were very clear and easy to understand and learn from. A very comprehensive book although now a little dated.

1. This book has not received any awards.

2. Appropriate grade levels: 2nd-12th grade

3. This is an informational text that teaches readers all about the stars and planets. It is very detailed and covers lots of content within a short amount of pages. Every chapter has diagrams, charts, and images to help to give the reader a different perspective and better understanding of the content.
