Anyone looking for a basic introduction to the solar system will be happy to learn that the Seuss crew has decided to tackle this important subject. In There's No Place Like Space: All About Our Solar System, classic characters start to familiarize young readers with each planet (as well a few constellations), using Seussís simple style of rhyming text and vibrant illustrations that educate and entertain.

Young readers learn Mars is hot during the day but cold at night and on Venus it will never rain. Jupiter is the largest planet, Neptune is the bluest, and Mars is covered with dust. It might also surprise children to learn about the rings that circle Saturn and the satellites that travel around Uranus. There is also a discussion about the fact that our planet Earth spins and the sun keeps us warm.

There's No Place Like Space: All About Our Solar System provides a foundation for the studying of our solar system and is a great addition to the vast collection of Seuss books that have come before it.
