Staff Reviews


Did you know that Earth is what scientists call “in a Goldilocks Zone?” It is called that because it is in that sweet spot in the planets line up that makes it perfect for life. It is not too hot, or too cold, but just right. Sheneman’s book is a great way to find out why this is, plus our two narrators (Goldilocks and Baby Bear) entertain you the reader as we read along on the adventure. Explore Earth and the other planets (sorry Pluto, you’re still not there) as you have fun. — Jeanette

Description


Award-winning author-illustrator Drew Sheneman brings budding astronomers the truth about the solar system in this informative and hilarious nonfiction picture book that will teach kids everything they didn’t know (and never thought to ask) about space!

For as long as people have stared up to the stars, we’ve wondered if there could be life on other planets. But the truth is that life can’t survive anywhere else in our solar system. Venus is way too hot. Neptune is w-a-a-a-ay too cold. And don’t even get us started on Uranus.

But there’s more to Earth than just having the perfect temperature that makes it the best place in the known universe to live. What makes Earth so special? Join Goldilocks and her best friend, Baby Bear, on an interstellar adventure to learn all about our solar system in this informative, hilarious, and 100 percent factual nonfiction picture book by award-winning author, illustrator, and cartoonist Drew Sheneman.
