This is a great non-fiction PB. It’s full of interesting facts and ones that kids will think are cool! Plus, it’s funny! My kids (4 and 8) enjoyed it as did I. It's the perfect read aloud for preschoolers and would work well in elementary classes too.
Read to the end for the most fun author’s note I’ve ever read. Plus, some additional facts about our fantastic planet and our universe.
