Hello, friends! Our book today Discover Our Solar System, written by Colin Stuart and illustrated by Charlie Brandon-King, a rich compendium of science for young astronomers.
With an introduction that compares life on Earth to the scope of the celestial bodies in the universe around us, Stuart and Brandon-King then lead the reader on a journey across our solar system. Beginning at our Sun and traveling through each of the planets, ice belts, dwarf planets, moons, and more, each body is given a two-page spread filled with illustrations, detailed specifications, and fun facts to pour over. Also detailed is the science of how we study these wonders of space, including information on the Big Bang, space stations, craft, and the future of space exploration.
Educational and fun! Well-designed pages give STEM-minded readers hours of information to absorb, yet lays it out in a way that doesn’t overwhelm or confuse. The artwork ranges from highly technical to sweet and simple to awe-inspiring, adapting to the intended tone each subject or topic nicely. This isn’t a book for a single sitting at any age, but young kids like JJ will enjoy the illustrations, and older bookworms – especially those with a passion for space – will devour every page. A wonderful tome for young astronomers, or anyone who wants to learn more about the magic of the solar system that surrounds them. Baby Bookworm approved!
