School Library Journal - 04/01/2020 Gr 1–3—This series uses emoji-style images of the planets to illustrate the book covers. This same image is used throughout each book to ask questions such as, "Do you know what planets are smaller than me?" The size of the planet, its order from the sun, and length of time for its orbit are included. Details like the presence of rings or moons or composition of the planet are also mentioned. Other information such as the length of a day is provided for some planets but not all. While each book ends with a page about what makes the planet unique, sometimes the answer is vague. Captions for the illustrations would be helpful; for instance, a Mars rover is shown but never mentioned in the text or identified. VERDICT Visually attractive, but has gaps in consistency. - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
