The solar system
Great little book , my 5 year old son loves it - I have even learnt from it !

A Great Series
This was the first of the Beginners Series that we bought for our 6 year old son. He loves looking through the pictures and reading about what different planets are like. We have now bought him several in the series and he enjoys looking at which book he is going to ask for next.
