13 Planets
The Latest View of the Solar System


by David Aguilar  (National Geographic Kids)

The big, bright digital paintings and occasional photographs will catch students attention, but the well written text and beautifully designed format will keep the reading. This book employs the usual one-at-a-time format, then adds a final section on other solar systems outside our own at the end.  *Updated to include Pluto, Ceres, and Eris!
