In one of two titles launching the Hello, World series (Weather is available simultaneously), McDonald uses chunky, vividly colored collage-style illustrations to showcase the planets of our solar system, even including Pluto, described as “a tiny dwarf planet, very far away from the sun.” Direct sentences introduce the highlights of the planets, moon, and sun, while also touching on constellations and comets. Supplemental tidbits (“Ouch! Asteroids and comets often hit this planet,” she writes about Mercury) offer additional details to pique the interest of children just hearing about Earth’s cosmic neighbors for the first time. Up to age 3. (Mar.)
