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.

A chart comparing the featured body to earth’s temperature, atmosphere, and other conditions concludes each book. Reading list, Glos., ind.

Mars

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.
