5 Stars- A definite must have for younger readers and space adventurers
Get set to explore the solar system one planet at a time! Counting backwards from Mercury to Neptune, EIGHT SPINNING PLANETS features innovative die-cuts throughout to reveal realistic, touchable planets on every spread that disappear one by one with each turn of the page. Young readers will love discovering simple facts about the planets as they feel their way through the sturdy pages of this book. An excellent and playful introduction to the solar system!
Both my Preschool and Kindergarten ages kids have enjoyed this book. It's bright colors and realistic, touchable planets make this a very engaging read. With simplistic descriptions and a real picture of each planet, young space explorers will feel like they've taken a brief trip around our solar system.
I think 8 Spinning Planets would be a perfect fit for both preschool and Kindergarten curriculum, as well as for your child's personal home library.
