Colorful, bright, and easy to understand, this board book is a good intro to solar system facts for the littlest kids. I've read some of the criticisms of it - Pluto is included as a dwarf planet, but the other dwarf planets aren't - and I don't find issue with it. Pluto is easily the best known dwarf planet, and many adults include it as a planet in discussions of the solar system, which is probably why it was mentioned. A fun, basic intro.

AlaMich Have you broken the bad news about Pluto to him yet? Nah, better wait til he‘s older...😔😉 1y
Zelma I will never accept that Pluto is not a planet. 😉 1y
lauren.lerner What I liked most about this book was that Pluto is included as a dead planet, it‘s new designation. But to me, Pluto will always be a planet!! @AlaMich @Zelma 14mo

I'm going to shamelessly post pictures of my daughter with books today. I like this super simple intro to astronomy. The pictures are bright and fun to look at while the text is short and sweet. #yslibrarian #bookgrub #earlyliteracy
