Review: Puffin Little Scientist: The Solar System

The Puffin Little book series makes facts and figures super fun and super accessible for kids.

Little Scientist: The Solar System takes kids on a space adventure. 

It introduces kids to key space concepts, like orbits, gravity and atmospheres, and dives into everything you need to know about the planets in our solar system, including the dwarf planets (with an explanation about Pluto’s demotion from planet to dwarf planet!).

There are facts galore in this little book, but they are presented in an easy-to-read layout, with engaging snippets spread across the pages.

All the Puffin Little books feature one bright colour throughout. In this one, blue is the star and it’s used generously to engage and add to the fun illustrations.

Little puffin also plays a key role in the illustrations. He travels by spaceship and joins readers on the adventure, zipping around planets.

This is a delightful, fun book part of a fun non-fiction series for kids. Make sure you check out others in the series, too, like Puffin Little Cook: Snacks and Puffin Little Environmentalist: Composting.
