Praise for Discover Science: Solar System

“With glossy color pages, abundant visals, and descriptive prose, this Discover Science series title provides an accessible introduction to earth's solar system. Printed in a large font, the text is well suited to newly, independent readers' abilities as it simply conveys concepts such as gravity ("a force that pulls things toward one another") and occasionally uses familiar comparisons to aid comprehension. . . . this title offers a lively overview that will interest budding astronomers looking for personal reading choices.” —Booklist
