The Secrets of Neptune

We know that Neptune takes 165 years to go around the Sun, but it still has secrets!  It is so far away that humans have only sent one spacecraft to visit our distant neighbor. Learn about Neptune’s discovery, what it would be like to visit the ice giant, and what scientists still want to know. Vivid photos, scientist spotlights, and sidebars help unlock the secrets of Neptune.

"From early human observations of lights in the sky, to past and future research missions, they’ll uncover many secrets about our celestial neighborhood. Comparisons to Earth, fact boxes, maps, and captions all combine to aid understanding. These books support Next Generation science standards, and the Smithsonian’s seal of approval guarantees excellence of this nonfiction set." - Lunar and Planetary Information Bulletin

Planetary Society - Emily Lakdawalla

"...particularly good, with up-to-date science and exploration sections. . . .All the books featured one current scientist (the list includes Louise Prockter, Adriana Ocampo, Mark Bordreaux, Ashwin Vasavada, Steve Vance, Carolyn Porco, Leigh Fletcher, and Heidi Hammel, respectively), and all have a closing page talking about questions for future exploration missions." - Planetary Society

Nonfiction Notes from the Horn Book

"These books for second through fourth graders include basic facts about planets in our solar system, accompanied by excellent images from the latest planetary explorations. Additional considerations of “secrets” — the unknowns and puzzles that guide current scientific inquiry — illustrate the constantly changing understanding of astronomers, both historical and present-day." - Nonfiction Notes from the Horn Book

School Library Journal - Audrey Sumser, Kent State University Tuscarawas, New Philadelphia, OH

"A visually strong exploration of the eight planets in the solar system. Filled with “Fast Facts,” including the planet’s diameter, distance from the sun, number of moons, and other relevant details, as well as short, readable sentences, each volume supports Next Generation Science Standards. The inclusion of “Critical Thinking Using the Common Core” at the end of the book will appeal to educators, administrators, and parents and will provide students with an opportunity to articulate and analyze what they’ve read." - School Library Journal
