Postcards from Pluto: A Tour of the Solar System Reviews
Great for basic facts about the solar system- updated with Pluto as a dwarf planet.
Using postcards sent from the planets back home, a group of Dr. Quasar's students travel through space visiting each of the planets. Short snippets of information about each planet is cleverly disguised on the postcard's message. Also, kids are introduced the correct way to address a postcard. Used for "Postcards from Home" Storytime: June, 2011.
A good intro to a unit on the solar system, the book offers a happy blend of fact and fancy. The book was reissued with changes reflecting new discoveries and terminology; a good springboard for a discussion on copyright dates and the ever-changing nature of science.
perfect for teaching the solar system
There are better space books out there, but this was ok.
K - 3Kind of like the Magic School Bus Books - Kids on Tour send postcards back to Earth - Solar System
