Solar System Book for Kids

Solar System Book for Kids

With this free, printable solar system book for kids, you will have the facts about each planet and more all in one place to refer to. How many planets are there? Which planet is the biggest? What do they look like? What is a comet? All the questions just keep coming once your child becomes interested in space. Part of that is because the concept of space is so hard for kids to wrap their mind around and then on top of that there is so much to learn. 


Planets in this book include: 

  • Earth
  • Jupiter
  • Mars
  • Mercury
  • Neptune
  • Saturn 
  • Uranus
  • Venus

Will your child memorize all these facts? No way! And they shouldn’t. This is just for reference to get your child thinking and get the conversation started. 


This book also features information about:

  • Moon
  • Sun
  • Asteroid Belt
  • Comet
  • Meteor
  • Space probe
  • Terrestrial Planets vs. Gas Giant Planets
