Summary

Every young child loves to look up at the moon in the night sky. Now here's a Hello, World! board book that can teach toddlers all about the sun, moon, stars, and planets--with colors, shapes, sizes, and super-simple facts.

Hello, World! is a series designed to introduce first nonfiction concepts to babies and toddlers. Told in clear and easy terms and featuring bright, cheerful illustrations, Hello, World! makes learning fun for young children. And each sturdy page offers helpful prompts for engaging with your child. ("Can you point to the red planet? That's Mars!") It's a perfect way to bring science and nature into the busy world of a toddler, where learning never stops.

Look for all the books in the Hello, World! series: Weather , Backyard Bugs , Birds , Dinosaurs , and My Body.

"A cheerful introduction to outer space." --Booklist

"Supplemental tidbits ("Ouch! Asteroids and comets often hit this planet," [McDonald] writes about Mercury) offer additional details to pique the interest of children just hearing about Earth's cosmic neighbors for the first time."-- Publishers Weekly

Booklist Review

Richly colored paint-and-collage illustrations are set against a velvety, deep-blue background in this first look at the solar system, which begins by asking young readers to look up at the night sky and spot the moon. Then a two-page spread diagram of the solar system appears with the vibrant sun in the center. What follows is a planet-by-planet journey away from the sun. Each planet gets a close-up accompanied by a very basic fact. For instance, it is noted that Mars has giant volcanoes. At story's end, stars and comets light up the sky. A cheerful introduction to outer space.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2016 Booklist


Publisher's Weekly Review

In one of two titles launching the Hello, World series (Weather is available simultaneously), McDonald uses chunky, vividly colored collage-style illustrations to showcase the planets of our solar system, even including Pluto, described as "a tiny dwarf planet, very far away from the sun." Direct sentences introduce the highlights of the planets, moon, and sun, while also touching on constellations and comets. Supplemental tidbits ("Ouch! Asteroids and comets often hit this planet," she writes about Mercury) offer additional details to pique the interest of children just hearing about Earth's cosmic neighbors for the first time. Up to age 3. (Mar.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
