Ice, rocks, gas, dwarfs and belts are what kids will learn about when they peek inside 13 Planets to see what Aguilar has in store for them. Did you ever wonder if the dust on top of your dresser is from a meteor? Readers will learn about all of the planets in the solar system that surrounds earth. Greek and Roman symbols and their names will be revealed along with an explanation of how the planets got their names and who discovered them.

Fantastic photography creates an awe inspiring adventure towards learning which will allow a child's imagination to soar. Parents and teachers will explore other solar systems as well. In the back of the book is a detailed glossary explaining all of the terms that readers will absorb as they flip through the galaxy one page at a time. And if this book isn't enough and readers want more once the last page is turned there is a list of other sites on the web for more learning, growing and exploring.
