Our Earth is part of a fascinating planetary family--eight planets and an odd bunch of solar system "cousins"--that spin, roll, tilt, blow, and whirl around the Sun. Here, to the tune of "Over in the Meadow," young ones can get a glimpse of our remarkable neighborhood, and our place in a very big universe. Simultaneous.
If the Sun were a poet, then Going Around the Sun captures just what it would say to its beloved family of planets.
