A book about our Solar System with pop-ups, pull-outs, sliders, and foldouts

The Sun and The Planets by Patricia Geis
Today’s featured book The Sun and The Planets by Patricia Geis, reviewed by our reader and local mom Yvette, is a very detailed and informative adventure about earth and outer space, with pop-ups, pull-outs, sliders, and foldouts.


The Sun and The Planets

This book starts off as if we are taking a spaceship to outer space with many very interesting facts along the way. This book is very informative and gives a huge insight on our universe.

It explains the rotation of the sun and planets:

The Verdict

My boys loved the pop-up features of this book, it was very appealing. I could not read it all in one sitting. They lost interest and wanted me to hurry up and finish it. We finished the book within three attempts. It is a ton of extra information in this book. It is very detail oriented, unfortunately it takes more time to get thru the entire book with littles. I did not like that many of the words are very tiny and hard to read.
