* My Review: Sparks The Imagination


Easy to read, Educational, Colorful, Great illustrations
What a great way to travel the Solar System! This is an easy to read book with colorful illustrations from Victor Tavares. Each page sparks the imagination. Perhaps you will bake ginger cookies on Venus or throw a frisbee at Uranus. Maybe with your lunar lasso you'll loop Saturn's bright rings. Theresa Heine's poetic language is a fun way to learn about our solar system.
