•    Nancy Coffelt. Dogs in Space (Harcourt, 1996).

Fictional "space dogs" travel through our solar system, visiting each planet. Dogs in Space is a great way to introduce young children to the solar system. Fictional "space dogs" travel through our solar system, visiting each planet.  When they cannot find anyone at home on any of the planets, they return to planet Earth.  The last few pages of the book include a quick reference guide with information on the sun and each planet.

•    Harper Charise Mericle. There Was a Bold Lady Who Wanted a Star (Publisher Little, Brown and Co. 2002)

Harper takes readers on a crazy journey in her spin off of the song "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly." This story is yet another version of the song "There Was an Lady Who Swallowed a Fly." The book maintains the same rhyme and pattern as the original song.  The book, however, is about a lady who wants a star and as the story says, "I don't know why she wanted a star - It seemed to far."  In the end, she does catch a star and returns home with it for her son.  The humorous, fictional stray could be a great starting point for some discussion on the size of stars and how far away they really are.
