Astro Girl

Publisher: Otter-Barry Books

Review

Astrid loves space and she wants to be an astronaut!

She has lots of fun with her Papa finding out what it takes to become one: from doing experiments and eating dried food, to getting used to near-zero gravity.

Astrid thinks she’s ready to be an astronaut, but will she get to meet her personal hero and real-life astronaut soon?

A delightful and educational picture book for young readers interested in space travel. The illustrations are colourful and simple, with large-print text, diverse characters and heartfelt father-daughter interactions. It also includes some fun facts about pioneering female astronauts from the 20th century.
