What's the coldest planet in the solar system? Uranus! Because it's so far away from the Sun, its temperature dips to about -357°F. Unlike Earth, this super-cold planet isn't made up of rock. Instead, it is made up of liquids and gases--including the blue-green gases that give it its beautiful color. Early readers will be taken on a journey through outer space as they learn these and other fascinating facts about Uranus. Each 24-page book features controlled text with age-appropriate vocabulary and simple sentence structure. Stunning photos closely align with descriptive text that will grab kids' attention. Emergent readers won't be able to stop turning the pages as they explore Earth's solar system. Get ready to blast off!

The Horn Book Guide Review for Out of This World

Limited facts about objects in the solar system are presented in simple sentences for beginning readers. The two-page illustrations feature images of the planets, the sun, and occasionally spacecraft on eye-catching starry black backgrounds. A chart comparing the featured body to earth’s temperature, atmosphere, and other conditions concludes each book. Reading list, Glos., ind.

Uranus

The Out of this World series offers books on significant objects in the solar system, including the sun, the planets, and dwarf planet Pluto. A subset of the publisher’s Little Bits! First Readers series, the books have short main texts with a relatively simple vocabulary and a formulaic structure (distinctive feature, place in the solar system, comparison of size to Earth, etc.). While some volumes include statements that need further explanation, the illustrations, mainly from NASA, are often colorful and attractive. A secondary choice for larger library collections.
