The Planets

(4) K-3 Galaxies presents a guide to our universe of stars and galaxies and includes a rudimentary history of astronomy and telescopes. Planets introduces each planet and the basic concepts of planetary motion. While these two lightly updated editions feature Gibbons's inviting, scientifically rigorous illustrations, two depictions of the solar system in Galaxies still show the outdated nine-planet model. Review covers these titles: Galaxies, Galaxies! and The Planets.
