Marianne Berkes has a gift for making science fun, and this book is exhibit A. Mother sun and her family of planets spin, roll, tilt, blow and whirl around the Sun to the tune of Over in the Meadow. Each of those actions is astronomically correct. For example, Earth is the one that tilts, and that is what creates the seasons. It is also astronomically up-to-date, with Pluto being a dwarf planet. Bright illustrations create an exciting mood, and there is plenty of interesting supplementary information in the back along with tips on related ways to integrate science, art, and literature in the classroom.

In her new book, Going Around The Sun: Some Planetary Fun, Marianne Berkes has adapted this poem to introduce .

In her new book, Going Around The Sun: Some Planetary Fun, Marianne Berkes has adapted this poem to introduce children to our solar system. Old Mother Toadie becomes Old Mother Sun, and she’s trying to get her planets in line. Each stanza of the poem is about one of the planets in the solar system, and underneath the stanza is a short fact about the featured planet. Janeen Mason’s brilliant and detailed mixed-media illustrations are just as engaging as the text, from the the splendid illustration of Saturn and its rings to the picture of all of the planets lined up and drawn to scale at the end: This is a great page with lots of learning opportunities.

My nephew and niece love Marianne Berkes' "Over in the Ocean" book, so I checked this out at the library first. And thus, my nephew's (4 yrs) obsession with the planets and our solar system! So of course, I had to buy the book for him. The illustration is not as good as "Over in the Ocean" but both kids love it still.

Perfect book for 3 -4 year olds. Teaches them all about planets. It is well written, well illustrated. we read it to our 3.5 yr old daughter in a sing song voice and lo with in a week she could sing it all by herself. Now she knows that pluto is really not a planet and that neptune is tardy!

Recommended story for children in grade school. This book gives them an insight of the planets , including Earth, around our sun

Like Berkes' Over in the Ocean, this can be sung to the tune of "Over in the Meadow". This one is not really a counting book, though it does refer to the number of each planet in order out from the sun: “Up in outer space, many moons in its heaven, is the planet Uranus. This is planet number seven.” It also includes facts about each planet in the back, and ideas for classroom activities. So, a lot of strengths, but truthfully I don’t like it as much as Berkes' other books. To fit the musical structure, she had to include commands that Mother Sun gives to the planets (my co-teacher hates anthropomorphized stars and planets…) and the commands are stretching things: She tells Neptune “‘Move’ said the Mother. ‘I move,’ said Eight. So it moved – oh, so slowly and the Sun had to wait.” The note on the page explains that “Neptune takes 165 Earth-years to go around the Sun – it needs to move!” For Mars: “‘Turn’ said the Mother. ‘I turn’ said Four. So it turned and we learned there was iron in its core.” It works, but it’s not great. However, the illustrations by Mason are beautiful!! They’re done with melted crayon for the background – she covers a griddle with foil and heats it, then lays paper on it and draws with crayon, which melts as you draw. Then she uses acrylic paint, color pencils and computers to create the planets. When I teach about the solar system, we put this book out on an art table, and our kids do their own melted crayon paintings.

What works with habitats also works in outer space! This counting rhyme teaches the order of the planets with illustrations that portray these heavenly bodies both real and beautiful. Each page offers a quick "cool fact," while a content section at the book's end provides further information. The author's description of gravity as a leash holding each planet close to the sun is an example of her clear, visual prose. She also skillfully handles Pluto - since its demotion from planetary status - as all of her adult readers grew up with 9 planets, not 8. Great classroom tips and art ideas are provided at the book's end. Marianne Berkes' first leap from biology into earth science is a winner!

Going Around the Sun: Some Planetary Fun is sure to send kids to outer space and in a good way. Marianne Berkes's text is so engaging and informative and the the planets are beautifully rendered by illustrator, Janeen Mason. Each page is a visual treat sure to get children interested in our solar system. The book is chock full of details on each planet. A must for home and school, this book can be enjoyed by a wide variety of ages.

This book is a treasure. All the basics are here, making it a great introduction to the solar system, rendered in Marianne Berkes' fun rhymes. Janeen Mason's illustrations add an amazing swing, swoop and swirl of color to the planets, bringing them alive and reminding us that space is not cold and sterile, but alive and full of action. A gorgeous little gem of a book!
This book is gorgeous! I've never scene planets illustrated so beautifully. A media specialist could suggest this book to any K-5 class. The simple rhyme introduces the little ones to the planets, thier order and shares something unique about each one. This quarky fact can lead older kids to more exploration of the planets. The back of the book has loads of factual information on our solar system as well, great for research and reports. Another nice perk is the author and illustrator notes in the back of the book, including a "discover more" section. Enjoy!
