Uranus

Uranus
By Gregory L. Vogt; The Millbrook Press 1993

Summary: An introduction to the blueish-greenish planet, discovered in 1781 by Sir William Herschel. This planet has a ring system and is about four times bigger than the Earth. Uranus has 15 moons and five are named for characters in plays by William Shakespeare.

My Review: I love reading about our solar system and the planets found in it. In this simple nonfiction book about the planet Uranus, it gives quick facts about the planet, it compares Uranus to Earth, information about Uranus’s moons, and a glossary to help with words children won’t understand. I found it to be an insightful book.
