“The illustrations are fun and whimsical.”
“The space theme is adorable. I really like that some of the letters stand for specific real life things, people, and places, e.g. Hubble space telescope, Yuri Gagarin, Kennedy Space Center, etc., so we can use the book to not only learn the words but also talk about the importance of the pictures depicted. There are also general space concepts shown like universe and zero gravity. A fun book!”
“This is a fantastic little book to introduce space concepts to little ones. It’s really useful to have imagery to explain big concepts to little people.”
“I like how this book helps me introduce the concept of outer space to my child. I like the illustrations, and the diversity of people shown in the book.”
“My child loves space so it’s a fun way to learn both about the alphabet and the universe.”
“We love reading this book. My daughter loves sounding out the letters and connecting them with a subject she’s really interested in. The colors are vivid and bright, and there are great shapes and “space stuff” to point out on each page.”
“My daughter loves the pictures of space and pretending she’s an astronaut in space like the girl on the cover. I love the pictures too! The illustrations are done very well, and the words for each letter are clever and fun. Each page is a very quick read, so it’s fast to get through. We’ve also been taking it on outings with us so my daughter can look at all the pictures in her stroller.”
