Planets - School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

Brief but well stocked with details, these titles invite readers to travel to a planet to explore both its surface and interior or, in the case of Earth, to observe from space. . . . The content is well presented both in main narratives and in closing summaries.

Your Mission to Jupiter (Planets) – Booklist

Each spread devotes itself to one area. . . . Meanwhile, smaller facts further clarify the lesson. The slightly heavier “How Do Scientists Know about Jupiter?” closes out this fine entry in the Planets series.
