What is the Moon?

Publisher: Usborne


Budding astronauts can find out all about the moon in this interactive, lift-the-flap book. Children can explore what the moon is made of, the different shapes it can appear as in the night sky and how astronauts reach the moon in rockets. Once young readers have taken a peek at what it’s like on the moon, they will find out exactly what they need to do to plan their own visit, too!

This book is part of Usborne’s excellent "lift-the-flap very first questions and answers" series, which is the perfect introduction to big questions for little children. The board book is simple and playful for the very young but touches on more complex ideas like orbits too, so it’s perfect to share with siblings.

A book that children can return to again and again over the years.
