We go on a journey looking at all the planets in our solar system, including Earth. We see how they differ from one another, and concepts like gravity are explained in a clear simple way. A mixture of beautiful photographs and artwork complement the text. "Oxford Reds" is our first major super series for newly confident readers. Each book is on a real-life subject, with a simple lively text and richly coloured, realistic illustrations. Many are written by well-known children's writers. Each one is written by an author who communicates enthusiasm, passion, and understanding for the subject. Approved by educational experts, "Oxford Reds" contain clear type, simple sentence structures, information boxes, contents pages, alphabetical glossaries, and parents and teachers notes. These books will appeal particularly to the beginner reader who prefers factual information to a story. Other subjects include: Sharks; Snakes; Frogs and Toads; Dogs; Rockets; Wolves; Dinosaurs; Spiders; and Whales.
