3.0 out of 5 stars Good ol' USA
It's OK, but remember it is produced by National Geographic and as such is very American. Feet, Fahrenheit, Miles, they need to catch on that the language of science is metric.To be fair the metric conversion is given but didn't they learn anything from the Mars Climate Orbiter?!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good ol' USA, 26 July 2014
This review is from: 13 Planets: The Latest View of the Solar System (National Geographic Kids) (Hardcover)
It's OK, but remember it is produced by National Geographic and as such is very American. Feet, Fahrenheit, Miles, they need to catch on that the language of science is metric.To be fair the metric conversion is given but didn't they learn anything from the Mars Climate Orbiter?! Also any reference to size is based on American states or place references. I'm probably being a little harsh as my 5 year old does enjoy having it read to her and the artist impressions are interesting. It's for the American market, and as a Brit I can only give it 3 stars. Maybe 3.5 if I could.

My Grandson was doing a project on our planets. I sent for this book to help him as he is only six. It was age appropriate and his finished project given a merit.

Bought this as a xmas gift for children. I don't have children so was a bit stumped as what to get them, but this book is perfect and they seemed pleased. It retained their interest. Maybe have influenced future astronomers...

Bought this for my grandson at Xmas as he is very interested in the solar system, he has a telescope and wanted more information that he could read and understand himself. This book is well illustrated and very understandable for his age, he is 8 but I could see it being appropriate for children at a greater age too.
