Science is my favorite subject to teach and my favorite topic is the Solar System. I grew up and their were nine planets. I was sad when Pluto was no considered a major planet any more. I was introduced to the book Poor Pluto by a student of mine. I read it to the class and they loved it!
This book was written by a third grade class in California as part of Scholastic Kids are Author's program. The book is about a class who learns that Pluto is no longer a planet. They wanted to make sure Pluto did not get to lonely out in space. They decide to build a rocket and go get Pluto and bring him back to Earth. Pluto soon gets sad and misses his friends, the class devise a plan to but him back in space.
My students loved this book because it was written by kids their age and they were also sad Pluto was no longer a major planet! It is a fun book and I would suggest checking it out!
