Gr 3–6—Math and mathematical concepts are used to reinforce facts about planets and other celestial bodies to adequate success in this series. Two-page chapters feature a paragraph of information accompanied by one or more photos or graphics that cover a given subtopic, such as water on Mars or the Great Red Spot on Jupiter. Chapters feature a mathematical "mission" that asks students to calculate planet diameters, how much a person on Earth would weigh on that planet, and so on. The image quality is often on the fuzzier side, although the sheer beauty of the space images will likely attract readers anyway.
