If social media has taught us anything, it's that everybody loves infographics. Everybody. They're irresistible. They distill complex information into beautiful and easy-to-understand posters. They're awesome! The Solar System Through Infographics is exactly what it sounds like: a book of infographics that visually explain some basic concepts of the universe as well as some fun ideas. For instance, how much would your dog weigh on each of the planets? Or what does the inside of the sun look like?

It's not a long book but it's visually stunning. I think any child who is interested in space exploration would love to have it on their shelf.
