Busy People: Astronaut by Lucy M. George

Step inside the lives of Busy People! Each story focuses on a different character as they go about their daily work. But each day holds a new challenge...

Next Steps are included at the back of the book to prompt further discussion and develop vocabulary. More information is provided about the Busy People and the type of equipment they need as well as the characters that work alongside them.


'The combination of story and facts is perfect for KS1 readers. Each of the Busy People stories focuses on a different character as they go about their daily work; the series fits the curriculum and learning about other people perfectly. Lively illustrations are informative and help children visualise Jenny's work. The informative section at the back of the book gives more detail about Jenny's work and what she wears, as well as introducing other related people. This is al l excellent for stimulating discussion and makes the books perfect for the classroom.'

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

I love Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books

Elosie Clarkson – age 11

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
