      Fairly good astronomy book with a heavy emphasis on the solar system with some supplementary material on stars and galaxies. Not bad.

      My 9 year old is SO into the solar system after doing his mobile project for third grade. I got him this book and he wont give me my kindle back; I think he has read it three times. I love seeing my son read. I got it a while back and am just now writing this review. Maybe because I've finally gotten my kindle back and it reminded me.

      This book is amazing. When I first started getting books and other info together to teach my kids astronomy for our home school science class, I was kind of lost. But once I found this book, everything started falling into place. I even learned more with this book than what I remember from school. My kids loved the brightly colored pictures.
