I haven't actually read this, but Isha is obsessed with it. Just today, she sternly warned me never to go to space myself lest I should wander too close to a black hole, in which case I would never be able to escape and have to spend the rest of my life there.

It takes me THIRTY MINUTES to read this aloud to my four year old and he just sits through the whole thing and eats it all up even though we’ve read a hundred books about space over and over and over. This is definitely one of the better ones.

Awesome book is awesome!

Our six year old (soon to be first grader!) loves everything about outer space. The Little Kids First Big Book of Space is an excellent resource! She marveled over fun facts about the different planets in our solar system and was wowed by the size of our universe. She enjoys reading the book to herself and loves trying to sound out the names of the planets and their moons. A whole lot of giggling has been going on.

The book focuses mainly on our solar system, but does venture further into space explaining black holes and nebulas. Overall, if you are looking for a book for those kids in your life who love all things space or nonfiction or heck, just a good read, I'd highly recommend this book. ...more

A wonderful introductory book for little ones. Probably best for 4+ but I can see some 3 year olds also liking it, esp if they are already into space. The book is appropriately picture-heavy with big, brightly-colored images and enough text/facts to satisfy older kids and even adults. Definitely worth buying!

This National Geographic Kids guide to the solar system contains more than one hundred photographs and illustrations that support a simple text for beginning readers. Filled with fun facts and questions to encourage interactive learning, this book introduces young readers to space and all that is in it. Parent tips offer ideas for shared learning experiences for parents and children. A glossary is included.

Highly recommended.

This is a beautiful book. My 5-year-old son LOVES it. He hangs on every picture and tidbit of info and wants to discuss while reading. I recommend it for all space loving children and then parents.

I mostly buy kindle books, but this is a very rewarding physical book to hold and look through - thick glossy pages, vibrant pictures, nice big text, excellent flow and layout - I can't say enough good things about it.

As with the others in this series, this is a fun book full of great information geared towards a younger audience. None of it is overwhelming, but neither is it missing anything important for a good overview of space. If you have a kid with a science inclination or a space inclination, this is a great book to get them.

It's got lots of beautiful pictures and simplistic space concepts for your aspiring astronaut... Or any other children who might just be interested in learning about space.

A cute book with lots of good information for little guys, but it's not so great for a story time. The kids get a little bored of it.

Wonderful book, I’ve learned so much from this. It does a fantastic job of explaining space in a non- confusing manner .

This book has now officially fallen apart due to excessive over-reading by children and is now carefully taped back together.

I like Jupiter because it has stripes. I read about Mars with my daddy. It has dust storms.

I got this book for my son and I read him sections of it nightly. It has lots of great images, small chunks of engaging text, and it's well organized. Great book.

This is a great informational book that has so much knowledge of space. It explains it in a fantastic way that can reach young students and keep older students engaged. This book fits perfectly on an informational book shelf because of the space knowledge being presented. My daughter loves this book. This book can be used in an intro to space. For pictures of planets. And as a presentation. And a writing project on "you are the expert of page _."

The very beginning of this book begins with a ‘How to use this book’ page which I found to be a great help. The book is very large and it makes you feel like you are reading a dictionary but in a good way. This book talks about everything from stars, to black holes, to planets. A lot of this information is subjective because, as we all know, Pluto keeps becoming a planet only to lose the title a few years later. That being said, the information is as accurate as it can be with little pop up The very beginning of this book begins with a ‘How to use this book’ page which I found to be a great help.

A lot of this information is subjective because, as we all know, Pluto keeps becoming a planet only to lose the title a few years later. That being said, the information is as accurate as it can be with little pop up facts on every page that provide additional info, such as how far a planet is from Earth. There is a size comparison chart that shows how large every planet is when they are compared to one another.

The author uses analogies to compare out of this world topics such as a galaxy to a pin wheel. The text is large yellow font so that it doesn’t get lost in any of the backgrounds of the pages. Some of the pictures used in the book are actual pictures that have been taken from a telescope or other device of the sun and the moon. There are fact filled boxes filled with info of where a planet is and how to say its name correctly which I imagine is very helpful to young children trying to sound out a planet’s name. Overall, I found this book to be a great tool to get children interested in reading about space. The large font makes kids feel like it is more manageable to read and the pictures could draw in any age of reader with its bright colors and complex shadings.

My Review: Another book of space for my little future astronaut! This was a combination of many of the books we already have read about space. It would be a good book for someone a little older, perhaps reading on their own. There is a lot of information in this book and it is a lot for little minds to absorb. Munchkin did get a little bored with this one (granted he is young for it but the subject matter is what he is really into right now) and it took us over a week to read it.

This extensive and vast informational book on space is indeed should be little kids first book on space. While space is such a complex and overwhelming topic, this book does an excellent job at explaining the facts and information in such a way the even little children will understand and love. The book does this by incorporating numerous help aids in order to present information. For example, there are chapter, labels, captions, fact pages, diagrams, etc. All these aids will help children to This extensive and vast informational book on space is indeed should be little kids first book on space.

The book does this by incorporating numerous help aids in order to present information. For example, there are chapter, labels, captions, fact pages, diagrams, etc. All these aids will help children to better digest the information they are reading and learning about. These aids also make it possible for the children to pick up the book and start anywhere they would like and still be able to comprehend the information. I know for me, with the help of these aids, I was able to learn more about space without having to sit down for hours and hours reading the whole book. I learned a lot from this book about planets, asteroids, comets, and more. I learned that the tail of a comet can be very long and stretch miles and miles, while also being very beautiful. Also, I learned that there is a black hole located in the middle of the Milky Way, that can not be seen since it is invisible. The realistic pictures also help add to the text because it helps especially young readers visual space and all that it includes. Overall, this book is very informative and provides many facts and interesting bits of information for kid readers. ...more

For my children that are especially interested in Space this book was a great place to start. The pictures are big and bright and engaging. And there is a lot of information in an easy to read and easy to understand format. We went through this book a little at a time pairing it with other sources to learn about our Solar System, but all of my children (3, 7, 9) will still sit and listen to it read again in its entirety.

I gave it five stars and I am glad we own it instead of borrowing from the library just because of the number of times it has been read and flipped through and referenced in the last three months alone. While I think my seven year old and nine year old enjoyed it and learned a lot from it I see it being a favorite for my three year old as he grows. Definitely worth reading if your young children are interested in space. ...more

An excellent way to introduce young children to the solar system! I read this book to my 5-year-old and 8-year-old granddaughters. The color pictures are fabulous. We read about each planet and then hung a cheap model in the hallway (a good change in activity that helped to maintain interest and provided opportunity for review).

The text is easy to read and the right depth for beginners.

This non-fiction book does a great job of breaking down ideas. It also has great pictures that making it more enjoyable.
I chose the book "Outer Space: Bedtime Race" by Rob Sanders as the twin text for this book. I found that adds a fun twist to learning about the planets. The planets are awarded metals best on the place that they got in the race, which is also their planet stance from the sun.

This is a very informative book. There was only one part where the information sort of trailed off leaving the reader to assume that the Rosetta orbiter will in fact fall into orbit around a comet that the Rosetta lander will some day set down on, but none of that is written.

Otherwise great illustrations and the scrapbook layout is very interesting to look at.

We love the "My First" series of National Geographic. This book is informative, with fun, age-appropriate questions for contemplation; suggested activities; and, in traditional National Geographic style, beautiful photography and illustrations. It's the best space book I've found for young children. My four-year-old daughter loves it, and I enjoyed learning with her as we read it together. This is definitely one we'll revisit again.
