Saturn Could Sail and Other Fun Facts by Laura Lyn DiSiena and Hannah Eliot, illustrated by Pete Oswald and Aaron Spurgeon, is part of a fantastic, fact filled series of non-fiction picture books published by Simon & Schuster called "Did You Know?" Oswald and Spurgeon, who worked on the movie Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, are the perfect illustrators for this kind of non-fiction book filled with facts you will want to share.
Saturn Could Sail and Other Fun Facts imparts important facts like the make-up of a comet, the fact that Pluto is no longer considered a planet and the fact that Voyager 1 has traveled all the way to the edge of our solar system. At the same time, the authors also share interesting tidbits like the length of seasons on other planets (one season can last for 7 years on Saturn!) and that most planets have rings but they cannot be seen from Earth and that Saturn could float if it was set adrift in an enormous body of water.
I couldn't find any illustrations from Saturn Could Sail and Other Fun Facts but I did find some great pieces from Trains Can Float and Other Fun Facts that are very representative. Be sure not to miss the other books in this great series, below.
