We received two of the titles from this series to review:
Other titles so far include Planet Earth, the Stars, and the Sun. I am excited to see Earth included, because sometimes it gets skipped over in talking about the planets and our solar system in general!
Written around a second or third grade reading level, this series should appeal to any independent readers who want to read about "true stuff", but who also have a sense of adventure. The main character in each dreams of visiting the title location, where Avery meets the Mars Rover and finds evidence of water, and Neil collects moon rocks with an android named Luna.
Planet-shaped blurbs of information pepper the pages of bright, friendly illustrations. I actually learned a few things I didn't know, involving fairly recent discoveries or discussions about place. Factually current, and attractive to the intended age group. A great addition to any library serving elementary age children!
