Meet the Planets is written in the cheerful, enthusiastic tone of a contest. Each planet is introduced as a contestant vying to be chosen as the favorite planet. Eight planets are represented here, whimsically illustrated with faces and arms and legs, along with symbols and historical figures associated with the study of astronomy. The introductions are brief, containing a few facts about the planet on display. In the end, the reader gets to choose the winner.

"For Creative Minds," a reproducible, six-page section of learning activities, wraps up the book. You can survey friends and family about their favorite among the planets, compare average temperatures and distance from the sun (along with a place value activity), answer true/false questions from information presented in the text, and complete a matching activity while learning more about each planet.

More learning activities are available at the publisher's website, as well as Meet the Planets in e-book form in Spanish or English.
