The first book I am going to talk about is called All My Friends Are Planets, The Story Of Pluto by Alisha
Vimawala. This is a very cute book that discusses both planets and dwarf planets. Pluto talks about it’s
friends the planets and describes a detail or two about each one. It is just enough information to introduce
planets to a child. They can learn facts about planets and the dwarf planets as well as how they are
different. This story also has a great secondary lesson. Pluto is similar to its planet friends yet different.
It also has similarities and differences between Pluto and dwarf planets. Kids can learn that it’s okay to
have some differences and it is also okay to partially fit in different places. This book just provided such
a neat way to teach kids a lesson about fitting in and that’s it is okay to be different to while teaching them
facts. My son loves reading this book over and over again. He loves learning about the solar system and
it is also a great lesson for him. My son frequently talks too much and loves order too much. He
completely related to Pluto and we used this book to discuss how people can be different but still be
friends. You should definitely check this book out.
