Synopsis

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.

Reviews

'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.'
