Comets, Stars, the Moon, and Mars
Comets, Stars, The Moon, and Mars
by Douglas Florian
This book is a cute compilation of short poems about outer space. The poems include information about stars, planets, the galazy, and constellations. The poems are fun for kids because they rhyme and this helps teach kids rhythm. There is a poem for each planet and they go in depth teaching kids facts about the planets in a fun way that they will remember. The book has fun illustrations and cut outs that capture the reader’s eyes. I would use this book in the classroom when I taught my kids about outer space and the solar system. I think they would be really engaged and this book would help to get them interested in the topic. Also, I could do an activity after reading, where the kids got to write their own poem about one of the planets.
