Marianne Berkes has a gift for making science fun, and this book is exhibit A. Mother sun and her "family" of planets spin, roll, tilt, blow and whirl around the Sun to the tune of Over in the Meadow. Each of those actions is astronomically correct. For example, Earth is the one that tilts, and that is what creates the seasons. It is also astronomically up-to-date, with Pluto being a dwarf planet. Bright illustrations create an exciting mood, and there is plenty of interesting supplementary information in the back along with tips on related ways to integrate science, art, and literature in the classroom.
