    One thought on “Kingdom Of The Sun: A Book Of The Planets”

    1. I absolutely loved this book I feel that this book could appeal to a broad range of readers who don t like traditional non fiction books First off, what sold me was the illustrations The cover is beautiful and so is every page inside Watercolor and perhaps other paint mediums with gold metallic accents, the illustrator did wonderful work The author blended information about Greek Roman gods and the planets named after them in a unique and poetic way It has potential to be used in a science, soci [...]

    2. My favorite page is mars which is LIKE A FLAMING RUBY I burn in the night sky They call me the red planet Mine is the color for anger and danger the color of blood Mars is the name I share with the god of war Most feared of the gods, he was furious and fickle He gloried in fighting and bloodshed Fear and terror were his constant companions They follow me too, for my two tiny moons bear those names as the ancient Greeks would have said them Phobos and Deimos But in truth I am a small and unthreat [...]

    3. Even after all my years of basic English and Science, I had no idea that the planets were named after the Roman gods of mythology I based this book by its cover It was bright, colorful and it shined with a golden hue Each illustration accompanying each planet s passage was marvelously drawn These illustrations put museum art pieces to shame The pictures in this book should be put on display instead.

    4. In this book the reader learns the story behind the names of the sun, moon and planets along with scientific insight into each of those entities Mythological names in Roman and Latin are mentioned, as well as, the mythological beliefs that were held for each solar system god and goddess A wonderfully drawn book with gold highlights that give it a royal feel A nice way to bring some warmth and depth to learning the solar system.

    5. This is a fascinating way of teaching the planets As Greek and Roman Mythology fans, this was completely in our vernacular The story does a beautiful job of bringing the planets to life and connecting them man s early understanding of the heavens Highly interesting Well done.

    6. A fun way to learn about the planets in our solar system Love the bright, colorful, illustrations and I love how they shine with the gold foil.

    7. Dated publication, 2002 But colorful and poetic The information is sufficiently stable, the statements universal For young scientists and sky watchers Any age can follow along.
