Voyage Across the Cosmos A Journey to the Edge of Space and Time by Giles Sparrow

Join us on the most amazing voyage imaginable: travel over 13.7-billion light years and experience the awesome sights, spectacles and breathtaking scale of the cosmos. Along the way you will visit planets, moons, asteroids, stars, nebulae, white dwarfs, black holes, dark matter and other phenomena that populate the heavens. Data streams, digital readouts and unique graphic interfaces, such as 'Image Enhance', 'Atmosphere Analysis' and 'Surface Detail' provide intrepid cosmic voyagers with a wealth of facts, information and data about all the celestial bodies they encounter - as well as some of the deadly hazards that lurk in outer space and how to avoid them. Printed in dramatic over-sized format and packed with more than 300 of science's most spectacular photographs, Across the Cosmos is quite simply the biggest, best and most exciting children's space book ever published. Across the Cosmos is specifically designed and written for children aged 7+ years. The sections are: Across the Solar System Through the Milky Way Beyond our Galaxy

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

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

Erica Motoc, age 7

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

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

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

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.

Angela East

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!
