There are thousands of exoplanets scattered throughout the Milky Way galaxy, and scientists are on a constant quest to find one just like Earth. In Exoplanets, Simon examines the planets outside of our solar system and uncovers what makes them habitable, our efforts to discover new life, and more.

With clear, simple text and stunning full-color photographs, readers will explore the farthest reaches of space and explore the answer to the question: do aliens exist?

This book includes an author's note, a glossary, an index, and supports the Common Core State Standards.

A beautiful way to learn about some of the lesser known solar system facts.

I'm a fully-grown adult and learned a lot of new things from this children's book. Every child learns about the planets in our solar system and the characteristics of each. But this is something that's most likely new to them. Or, if they've learned it, they don't remember it with the same voracity of the facts about Mars or Venus.
Exoplanets. New ones are being discovered every day. This is ongoing science, not something discovered many years ago. And the information is presented in a gorgeous package. The imagery is incredible.

Final Verdict: A beautiful and well-done way to get children interested in this area of science.
