Review: A Journey Through Space

If you have a child interested in space, this could be the perfect book for you. Fully illustrated throughout, and written by an award-winning science author, A Journey Through Space packs an incredible amount of information into its 48 pages.

From telescopes to rockets, asteroids to comets, from the sun and moon to the inner and outer planets, this book covers it all.

It's accessible, full of fascinating facts and delivers it all in bite-sized portions that slightly older kids will be able to handle on their own, but which younger kids will still be able to absorb with the help of an adult.

The front cover folds out to a poster of our solar system — a nice touch!

Also available in this series is A Journey Through the Human Body (ISBN 9781784932978).

Both books would be great additions to any kid's bookshelf.
