Don’t Know Much About The Solar System
By Kenneth C. Davis
Illustrated by Pedro Martin

     What are the stars made of? How old is the universe? Why is the sun so hot?

     These are three of many questions curious kids constantly ask when it comes to learning about the great unknown space our world orbits in. Now, these kids have these questions and many more answered in this book.

     Covering everything from the age of the universe to the planets to what it’s like to be an astronaut, Davis has crammed this book with child-friendly, easy-to-understand information that will have every curious kid tapped in awe the whole way through.

      I’ve been interested in the universe and all things “space-y” since I was little, and even though I’m not ten anymore, I still have a deep appreciation for books like this one. The information is interesting and easy-to-read, and illustrations are absolutely adorable!
