What are Stars?
Marta Alvarez Miguens
12pp., board book., RRP $A19.99
As soon as children are old enough to see the night sky and the stars, they have questions about them…
What are stars?
Can I visit a star?
How many stars are there?
Which star is the nearest?
Are all stars the same?
These, and others, are answered in this lift-the-flap book especially designed to answer the questions of very young readers. With several flaps on each page to lift, they can discover so much about the worlds that are revealed after the sun sets, the curtains are drawn and the lights turned off.
Driven by providing answers to questions, it is a great introduction to the inquiry process and information literacy as the child learns to seek answers, searching for them in different places and discovering that often, answers lead to even more questions.
Young readers will delight in learning new things and sharing their developing knowledge.
