Boy, Were We Wrong About the Solar System! by Kathleen Kudlinski

Kudlinski, Kathleen V. Boy, Were We Wrong About the Solar System! Illustrated by John Rocco. Dutton (Penguin), 2008. $15.98. PICTURE BOOK. With bright, funky pictures, Kudlinski and Rocco explore the different ways that our views about space have changed through the centuries. A simple timeline in the back fills in the details that were not in the text – just enough information without being pedantic. Any science classroom could easily use this picture book to talk about the importance of discovery, technology and the changing understanding of our world and solar system. EL, MS, HS – ADVISABLE.
