The Lovereading4Kids comment

A good first introduction to space, this book provides answers to questions children often ask, such as how big is the universe and how many stars are there in the Milky Way? Starting with information on how to get into space, and the planets nearest to Earth, it continues to cover the whole solar system. Language and explanations are clear and child-friendly, and author Steve Parker often relates what he is talking about to things children will be familiar with, so the surface of the sun at 6000 degrees Celsius is described as being 25 times hotter than a home oven, while we’re told that the Hubble Space Telescope is the size of a school bus. Full of information, this will inspire children to think about our solar system and what lies beyond it. ~ Andrea Reece
