Industry Reviews
"This is a great book that introduces STEM topics in an age-appropriate way for young children! Broken down by planets, the sun, and asteroids/comets it doesn't overwhelm readers. Simple information that reads more like an oversized comic book, the pages practically turn themselves. Coupled with the unique illustration style of Newman, this is great for any classroom from Junior Kindergarten and above!"
