Hello, World! Solar System (Board Books)
This book is a great start for kids who are interested in space. At some point, every child looks up to the night sky and wonders, “What’s out there?” This book teaches just that. It has verbiage a toddler can understand and fun, colorful pictures to help solidify the information. (Can you go outside and find the red planet? That’s Mars!).
Each page has helpful prompts for engaging your child and makes learning easy and fun for young readers. When I was young, I could look into the night sky and identify the Big and Little dippers, I knew the correct names for them and, of course, I could find Mars (the big red one). But, because of fun pictures and cool activities like the ones in this book, the information stuck, and I still find it fascinating today.
Books such as "Hello World! Solar System" make learning a blast for kids of all ages, from toddlers to young adults.
