Too Cute - A Place for Pluto

A friend came across this little treasure (thanks Lucy) and I couldn't help myself - I had to buy it! Themes of friendship, sharing, bullying, caring, inclusion and some really cool space facts, make this not only a cute story, with fab pictures, but a great teaching aide...!

A Place for Pluto
by Stef Wade
Illustrator: Melanie Demmer

What they say: Pluto got the shock of his life when he was kicked out of the famous nine. His planet status was stripped away, leaving him lost and confused. Poor Pluto! On his quest to find a place where he belongs, he talks to comets, asteroids, and meteoroids. He doesn't fit it anywhere! But when Pluto is about to give up, he runs into a dwarf planet and finally finds his place in the solar system. This feel-good picture book combines a popular science topic with character education themes of self discovery, acceptance, and friendship. It has bonus material in the back matter to support curriculum.
