Space Kids

An Introduction for Young Explorers

Publisher: Little Gestalten

Review

Including topics such as stars, planets, moons, gravity and even how astronauts are able to eat and sleep, each page of this fascinating book is a journey through the complexities of space. The book not only teaches kids about what is out there but also serves as reminder about just how special we are here on planet Earth.

This book is intended to inspire awe at the great big universe, and it certainly achieves that. De Santis' illustrations are scientific without being boring, and creative enough to spark the imagination, while Steve Parker's simple text manages to capture a sense of wonder that is fitting of the subject.
