The FIRST TIME I bought this book I noticed many reviews mentioning the poor binding and pages falling out after a relatively short time, but the reviews of the book were very positive. My then 2-1/2 year old took to this book immediately and it ultimately led to a space-fascination (complete with planets hanging from his ceiling, a birthday party at a space museum, multiple trips to the planetarium, etc...). I will say he learned the names of the planets by heart simply by me reading to him and him "reading" it constantly thereafter. While he obviously doesn''t read, he quickly learned every planet based on its first letter. He blew people away when after reciting every planet in order, stating which one''s were rocky and which were gaseous and continued by reciting all of the "dwarf" planets, as well. He can also identify various nebula''s based on their shape. We hobbled along by taping pages back into the book for almost a year as his space-phase seemed to gradually diminish. But sure enough, while going through his drawer his interest in the book was sparked again. This time he is more aware and thoroughly perturbed from the tape now failing and the pages once again falling out. He''s almost 4 and as much as it aggravates me out of principal to have to buy it again, I like that it keeps his interest in reading. He even "pretends" to read aloud by reciting what he thinks the words say. I''m thankful in that sense, but it still is not a reason to distribute books with poorly made bindings as this one is - especially from National Geographic (come on, so many people have those old National Geographic books for decades - why wouldn''t they use the same process?? lol). In summary - a great book to cultivate a toddlers interest but expect the pages to fall out within a few months of use. Sorry, but part of the review process is to take all aspects of the product into account and this major issue is a big deduct.

NOTE: I purchased this item on Amazon for full price. I try to write helpful, unbiased and insightful reviews because I also read reviews prior to making my own buying decisions. I notice many reviews lack helpful information, are not well written or give poor reviews based on not reading directions or failing to read the product details prior to purchasing. Writing valuable reviews helps pay it forward.

Hands down one of the best books for your space-loving kid (or self). We have multiple of the National Geographic Kids books, and I couldn''t praise them enough. The photographs are vibrant, awe-inspiring, and everything you would expect from National Geographic.

We love:
- how engaging these books are!!!
- information is just right. Not too much.
- not overly textbook or boring
- amazing photographs and graphics
- my kids absorbs the information and have practically memorized it all because this book is so well done

HOWEVER,

We do not love:
- The binding is faulty and the pages eventually detach and fall out over time. We keep taping them back in.

This has happened with multiple of these books, and it is frustrating. And this is with gentle use. We expect more from National Geographic and hope they remedy this.

I got this for my 5 year old who is just getting interested in space and he loves it! He found the first chapter a bit boring (viewing stars and planets from Earth, how the Earth’s orbit affects night/day and seasons, etc). But he loved the rest of the book — each planet has 4 pages devoted to it, and there are additional pages on other space objects like dwarf planets, asteroids, comets, nebulas, etc. Most illustrations are realistic drawings, but a few are photos taken by telescopes and probes. For each planet, things like size, terrain/atmosphere, temperature, moons, satellites/probes sent to the planet (up through 2016-2017!), etc are discussed.

He was interested in this book enough that we could read nearly all the text without getting bored. (He is not yet reading but listened to me read it all.) For younger kids or kids not as interested in space, you could simply name each planet/object and maybe read a few facts from the text.

My 5 year old son is totally infatuated with space. He wants his 6th birthday to be a space adventure where all of his friends and family go to space to celebrate with him (smile). While we can''t do that, I have gone on a quest to buy him as many resources about space as possible. This book is very big. It is wonderfully vibrant, with amazing imagery. The write ups are easy enough for him to understand and articulate back to us after he reads them. The book contains a wealth of knowledge about aspects of the solar system I didn''t know existed, so it becomes a tool for us to learn together. We use the book as a starting point to search YouTube for videos. It is one of his favorite night time reading books, and he even runs around the house with it showing new and amazing things to anyone who will listen. It is a joy to watch him grow in his knowledge and appreciation for space exploration. If I could give this book 10 stars I would.

My middle daughter took an interest in space very early, and was able to identify all the planets within the first few months of speech development. We''ve gone through three copies of this book, and I''d buy it ten more times if I had to. We bought it thinking that we should introduce some more advanced information since she showed such an interest, and this book nails it on every level.

It contains a lot of up-to-date information, and taught mom and dad more than a few new tidbits of information about the solar system. The best part about it, though, is how it balances giving a bit more mature/advanced information while remaining very approachable because it''s so visually engaging. As the title says, it''s also a nice big book. The illustrations are large, and the size lets little people who are learning how to turn pages and interact with books work with their fine motor skills, and learn how to handle with a bit more finesse. It''s also a great size to read with your little one on your lap, which is probably the best part.

This book will grow well with your child, and you can''t help but be a bit astonished when they start rattling off factoids to friends, family, and complete strangers, all to much fanfare. Of all the hundreds of books my children have had, this is their favorite. It''s my favorite too.

But I think that''s because they''re 5 and this book is a little bit too factual for them, when it''s not a very keen interest for them. This book will be fab when we need to learn about space, and I can imagine it would be a brilliant book for any young ones who do have a big interest in space. Despite my children''s current lack of interest in our I still gave it 5 stars, because from a parents perspective I know this is a great book and will one day be enjoyed.

I liked the book, and so do my kids. But apparently, only America has Astronauts. Only America sent probes into Space, only America has space stations, and only America has explored the solar system, and nobody else ever sent any satellites or rovers outside Earth except USA. Or maybe others did, and this book just prefers to not acknowledge that. There is no mention of ESA, Roscosmos, CNSA (Chinese space agency, who sent probes to the moon) the Russian probes to Venus or Lunokhod, the ESA probes etc. There are literally American flags on several pages. I thought Space was about exploration, about nations coming together to explore and to discover, about international discoveries and science, but apparently, America did it all by themselves and nobody else could possibly have sent say a probe to Venus (which the USA has never done), and nobody else has explored anything. The spelling is entirely American too, despite me purchasing this book from Amazon UK. I mean I expected the US spelling from National Geographic, which is a US publication, but I did not expect that they would completely ignore all efforts by the rest of the world and only talk about what NASA has done. Quite disappointed in that respect. Again, Science and space exploration are an international collaborative effort, ISS doesn''t only carry US astronauts and was built as much by Russia as it was the USA, but this book is 100% flag waving for the USA and ignores anything any other country did, and that disappoints me. One might even go so far as to call this propaganda. However, my kids and I did like the book. It''s colourful, easy to understand, and to the point. It was fun for them to learn about the planets. But my children are half Russian, they know full well that Russia sent probes to Venus, sent robots to the moon...but it isn''t mentioned in this book at all, only America. The explanations of the planets, the solar system, the composition of the planets is good. I don''t regret purchasing it .. It''s just a shame it''s 100% USA focused and ignores any discovery that America didn''t do. There are many pictures that include astronauts, rockets, probes etc that all feature the stars and stripes but not one mention of Russia/Roscosmos/JAXA/ESA etc. This would be a great book for anyone who''s children want to learn about space, and the planets and the solar system. But it completely ignores any space effort by anyone but the USA.

The book arrived as expected in immaculate condition. The images are stunning and there are lots of information explained in a style suitable for children. It can help children (and adults!) learn accurate space facts in a visually attractive and well organised way. I love that in some cases they include how to pronounce certain things, as it builds up with the concept of accuracy or real facts that I think the book intends. My child is enjoying very much reading the different sections/chapters of the book and is very proud to tell others about what they are learning. The only negative thing is that soon after it arrived, a couple of pages were detaching from the spine of the book, and we had to mend it. Still, it has been our first purchase of the National Geographic First Book series but will definitely not be the last one. I highly recommend it for children who prefer non-fiction reading content.
