Product Description:

"Joining his 1998 books about the solar systems' inner planets, noted nonfiction author Brimner brings kids up to date with facts about the outer planets. Saturn, according to Galileo, was unusual - it seemed to have ears - which today we know are its rings. Saturn is a gas giant like Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune. Wonderful facts - Saturn's rings are beautiful because the cold temperatures cause the gases in the atmosphere to freeze into crystals that swirl in bands about the planet - enliven an already interesting text. It is a very good introduction to one of the nine planets that make up our tiny part of the vast universe." - Marilyn Courtot, Children's Literature.

For ages 8 to 10.
