Lots of Things to Know About Space
64pp., hbk., RRP $A19.99
Every time a child looks to the sky, whether it be day or night, they wonder and ask questions.
What is the sun?
How many stars are there?
Are we alone?
And so there is a large collection of books available to help them investigate the answers to their questions, and this new one from Usborne is a worthy addition to the collection. Using catchy subject headings like “The Universe Awards” and “How to garden on the Moon”, and using funky diagrams and illustrations with minimal text to explain them, it answers all the regular questions and a few more. There’s even peek into the future where the concepts that propel sailing ships might be applied to space ships!
As always with Usborne publications, the subject is explored in a novel way that makes for engaging yet educational reading and is supported by Quicklinks for those who want to know even more because their curiosity has been sparked.
