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.

This is a very simple book, but it has an index and glossary that can be discussed. At the end of the book there's also some higher level reading info about phases of the moon and 'moon facts' ...more
