If your child is an aspiring Astronaut, then this is the book for them.
The book is jam-packed with things you need to know about space and has over 70 flaps for you and your children to lift.
The first page of the See Inside Spacecraft and other Space stations novel is the contents on the left-hand side with a list of 1-15 different categories. Subjects like what’s a space station, early spacecraft, the International Space Station and Mission to Mars among others can be found in this book. The rest of the page starts off with the first page ‘What’s a space station.’
It is full of engaging pictures, colours, information and flaps, with this book there will not be a dull moment and will give hours of fun reading.
It is also interesting for the adults too as there is information that we may not know, for example, I did not realise just how big the international space station is!
My children love reading this book, they are both autistic as well, so at times it can be hard to get them to read but facts books like this are a winner. The flaps help to keep them interested. Occasionally some of the information can be a bit long for them but I tend to just summarise.
See Inside Space stations and other Spacecraft book is a hardback so you do not need to worry if your kids are a bit heavy-handed as it cannot be destroyed easily.
The author has researched this well and has used a space expert – Libby Jackson to ensure what she has written is correct.
The book is suitable for children aged 6+ – however, if your child is younger and adamant, then they may enjoy looking at the pictures, pointing out parts and lifting the flaps.
Usborne also provides a few internet links, which means that once you have completed the book; you can extend your research and find out more online.
A fantastic children’s book all about Space
