Buckle up and ride along with Ellen—the world’s first Latina astronaut—as she goes for a spin around our solar system.
Beyond the clouds is a faraway place—a place called outer space. There you’ll learn all kinds of wild things about our solar system. There’s Mercury, which is probably a lot smaller than you think. And Venus, who shimmers so hot and bright. Rusty Mars has a big red mountain you can see from afar, and Jupiter has 78 different moons to keep it company.
Come ride along with Ellen Ochoa—a real-life inspiration, and the first Latina astronaut—as she goes for a spin around our sun, moon, and planets. With all the incredible details she’s learned about our corner of the galaxy, you might be surprised to hear which planet is her favorite.
The Solar System with Ellen is a fun-filled introduction to our solar system, told in both English and Spanish. The story shares interesting facts about our planetary neighbors, while celebrating Ellen Ochoa, the first Latina woman to travel into space. A Lil' Libros Bilingual Biography, The Solar System with Ellen is written by Patty Rodriguez and Ariana Stein, illustrated by Citlali Reyes, and published by Lil’ Libros.
