Order of the Planets Easy Reader Book

Space and the planets are one of our favorite subjects to do during the summer. We are always working on some project of some kind. Well, really we could do space almost all year and be happy! It is such a fun theme to study that just evolves as kids get older.

I wanted to add a fun easy reader for the planets. There are so many ways to study the plants but planet order has to be my favorite.

The book has the main 8 planets. No, Pluto though I do love to add Pluto in every now and then. You are going to find the sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.

The planets easy reader book goes great with the Planet Learning Pack.

The book starts off with the sun and you go out from each page. Each planet tells you where is it using ordinal numbers: first, second etc.

For each page in the book, we colored the planet and then we underlined the planet order. If you want a hands-on activity to go with this, there is a matching game using ordinal numbers for the planets in the Planet Learning Pack.
