The ABC Book of Rockets, Planets and Outer Space

26pp., board book, RRP $A14.99
As soon as they are old enough to notice the difference between day and night, perhaps even before that when they first ask “Why is the sky blue?”, little people have questions about space. This board book with its rhyming text, provides the first introduction to that mysterious world beyond our planet.
Designed to help little ones become more observant, such as looking at the changing phases of the moon, it also encourages their imagination as they think about what it might be like to land on the moon.
Perfect for preschoolers with questions!
