National Science Teachers Association Recommends
. . . This book from the Inquire & Investigate series from Nomad Press is directed at the middle grades, and combines easy to read text with color diagrams and photographs. In short comic strips (two or three per chapter) the book provides a tour of the solar system led by Dr. Fathima Abadi, a female astronomer. It's encouraging to find a book that depicts a woman scientist as its guide without drawing attention to her gender... Overall, this is an affordable overview of planets in our solar system.
