Pluto Gets the Call, written by Adam Rex, is the perfect way to introduce your children to an actual scientific debate in a fun, easy to read manner with facts about our solar system mixed in as they read. Pluto loves being a planet. It makes him feel special because there are only nine planets. Unfortunately, a call comes from Earth announcing that Pluto is no longer a planet and has been demoted to a dwarf planet. Then Pluto takes the reader on a tour of the solar system, getting increasingly angry as comets and asteroids taunt him about being demoted to a dwarf planet. Finally, the Sun manages to reassure Pluto that it doesn’t matter whether he’s called a planet or not. If you have a child who is interested in astronomy, check out Pluto Gets the Call from the library. It is both educational and fun to read for young children. Olivia, a PCPL Virtual Volunteer
