Did you know that scientists think this planet spins sideways because at some time during its life, it collided with another giant space object that knocked it onto its side? Or that a year on Uranus lasts as long as 84 years on Earth? These and dozens of other fascinating facts provide a perfect high-interest introduction to the seventh planet from the Sun, Uranus. Filled with information perfectly suited to a second-grade audience, this accessible, high-impact book combines solid science, technology, and even math with up-to-the-minute information, odd and often quirky facts, and astounding space photography. It also provides plenty of surprises and teachable moments that will draw young children into a rewarding, kid-friendly reading experience.
