Product Description

From the Back Cover

"There is a big gap between 'concept' books written for preschoolers and nonfiction that requires fluent reading skills. The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library books introduce beginning readers to important basic concepts about the natural world. They provide the critical foundations upon which complex facts and ideas can eventually be build. In addition, The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library shows young readers that books can be entertaining and educational at the same time. This is a wonderful series!"

On the face of it this book is best suited to children up to 7 years old... but it really has a lot to offer ANYONE who doesn't know what the nine planets are and where they are in relation to the sun! My son (almost 8) found it a great read, although he did comment that it wasn't 'exactly' like a 'proper' Dr Seuss... almost though... he still loves it.
I then took it into work where it was well received and two colleagues had learned their planets by the end of lunchtime. Great fun! I'd also recommend 'Inside Your Outside', also by Tish Rabe, we loved it

I bought this book in the Washington Space Museum - when my 4 year old twins took it to school it became one of the main books used that term to introduce the reception class (age 4/5) to space and the solar system. It's great fun, lots of rhyming, and now my children can recognise each of the planets and tell you the names of the planets in order (Mallory Valerie Ellery Meetzas Just Sold Us Nine-hundred-and-ninety-nine Pizzas!) I'm going to buy a second copy for the school so we can get ours back!

I bought this book for my 4year old as her class were "doing space" at school. She took it into school one day and the teacher read it to the whole class who apparantly all enjoyed it. My daughter certainly loves it and its helped her rememeber things about the different planets.

I think I benefitted as much from this book as did my two children, one boy, one girl. It is fun, has a great rhythm (as per Dr Seuss usual standards) and has a terrific mnemonic for remembering the planets and their positions. I don't know if it has been reviewed since Pluto was demoted but it's still a fount of information about what's up there including key facts about each planet which I, to my shame, hadn't known prior to my reading. It's a most definite keeper in our household and is still returned to (even by me!)
