Earth: My First 4.54 Billion Years

Earth: My First 4.54 Billion Years by Stacy McAnulty comically announces that his favorite description is “Planet Awesome”. This starts off a terrific tale of Earth’s place in the big family that is outer space. Earth is a funny planet, full of wry observations about his fellow planets. Our favorite comment was his description of Pluto’s reduction in status to the family pet. Very clever presentations of facts don’t feel like an astronomy lesson. (Non-Fiction)
