What is a planet? We live on one, but there are others. Are they all like Earth? Is there life on other planets? All About the Planets takes children on a tour of the nine planets of the solar system, explaining the vital statistics about each -- size, distance from the sun, temperature and why some are rocky and solid while others are made entirely of gases. It’s a fun journey from Mercury to Pluto. Spectacular NASA footage and lively animation will pique kids' curiosity. Hands-on activities are ideal for students to use as ideas for science fair projects.
