Read full description of the books The Planets:This book would be a great introduction to the planets. It provides fun facts and could serve as a jumping off point for more detailed exploration into one planet (for individual student projects) or to make decisions about the next step in terms of exploring outer space and what captures the interest of your students. The illustrations show, to scale (I am not sure how accurate this is), the planets, providing students with a nice visual aid. The back of the book has a great section called "More About Our Nine Planets" which lists some extra fun facts. The one drawback to this book is that it is a bit outdated- pluto is no longer considered a planet. Although, this could lead to the discussion of what it actually means to be a planet, how those requirements changed, and what pluto is currently classified as.
Read information about the authorFrom gailgibbons.com: I was born in Oak Park, Illinois, in 1944. Even as a little child, I was always busy putting books together. Sometimes I would bind them with yarn to hold the pages together. I've always loved drawing and painting. I was also a very curious child. My parents tell me that I was always asking lots and lots of questions.
Later, I went on to the University of Illinois, where I studied graphic design. Then I moved to New York City, where I got a job doing artwork for television shows. Eventually I was asked to do the artwork for a children's show. While doing that show, some of the children asked me if I had ever thought of doing children's books. My mind immediately recalled how much I enjoyed doing that type of thing when I was a child. So I put an idea for a book together and right away a publisher bought it. That book was called Willy and His Wheel Wagon. Since then, over 170 books that I have written and illustrated have been published. The type of books I write are non-fiction books. This is because I love researching so much. I get to ask lots of questions, just like when I was a kid. I also get to travel and meet lots of interesting people. While doing research for my book Nature's Green Umbrella: Tropical Rain Forests, I traveled to two islands where there are tropical rain forests, Saba and Dominica. I also had a great time writing and illustrating the book. I get a lot of pleasure from doing the type of work I do.
