“Told in language that kids will understand, making them feel right at home in the vast universe.”–Sesame Street Parents
“This is a book for adults to talk about with children . . . to raise big questions and open up discussion about the wonder of the universe.”–Booklist
“This is one of our 3 1/2 year old grandson’s favorite books. He is fascinated with learning about the planets and our solar system, and this book gives that information in a format just right for toddlers. I would highly recommend this book for curious little minds.” Amazon Reviewer
“This is an excellent book for young readers. Since it is an old book, it is not in print anymore, but it should be. It is so basic and still true about our universe. It is interesting and easily understood by young readers. The illustrations are well done. We ordered it for our grandson who is six years old. He loves it and reads well on his own.” – Amazon Reviewer
“The students loved the illustrations!! Perfect for teaching constellations/ or concept. The stars are very easy for the children to follow. I recommend this book to all educators.” – Amazon Reviewer
