I admit I was a little worried about reading this book to my four year old son because of the scientific facts that are written in the book. I was worried he would find it boring, but I was wrong. He loved the entire book and wants me to reread it over and over again. This was a surprise to me because my son is a big DR. Seuss fan and usually never wants me to read him anything else. But this has become his new thing.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to explain to their child about life in outer space. This book also makes a good bedtime story.

The book teaches children to see themselves and the planet in a new light and encourages readers to discover how they can help make the world a better place. Accompanying the story of how Max saves the day are numerous “Big Kid Box” sidebars that offer science facts and other pieces of fascinating information. Grown-ups and kids learn about science together with this fun and educational picture book.
