More About Hello, World! Solar System by Jill McDonald
 
 
 
Overview
Hello, World is a series designed to help parents introduce simple nonfiction concepts to babies and toddlers. Now even the youngest children can enjoy learning about the world around them.

Every young child loves to look up at the moon in the night sky. Now here's a book that can teach toddlers about the sun, moon, stars, and planets--with colors, shapes, sizes, and super-simple facts ("Can you point to the red planet? That's Mars ").

Told in simple terms and featuring bright, simple, cheerful illustrations, Hello, World makes learning easy for young children. And each page offers helpful prompts for engaging with your child. It's a perfect way to bring natural science into the busy world of a toddler, where learning never stops.

"A cheerful introduction to outer space."--Booklist

"Supplemental tidbits ("Ouch Asteroids and comets often hit this planet," McDonald] writes about Mercury) offer additional details to pique the interest of children just hearing about Earth's cosmic neighbors for the first time."--Publishers Weekly

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.)
