To celebrate World Space Week I am delighted to take part in the blog tour for, ‘Dr Maggie’s Grand Tour of the Solar System,’ a stunning new book from leading space scientist Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock. Travel through space on an journey through our solar system where you will explore planets, moons, asteroids and discover new and exciting places never seen before. Float past space junk, discover ice on mercury, fly between the gaps of Saturn’s rings and prepare to be amazed at what you might find. Climb into your spacesuit, pop on your helmet and take a deep breath, it’s time to experience the trip of a lifetime.
Space is an incredibly popular topic in primary school and my library is filled with a huge variety of books, I’m always on the lookout for new additions to my collection and this one particularly caught my eye. I enjoyed the mix of illustrations and photographs which are deliberately eye-catching and appealing to children. It is completely stuffed with fascinating facts that will inform and engage even the most avid of space fans. Who wouldn’t want to read about astronaut’s pee floating in space or learn that Pluto was named by an 11 year old school girl. It’s the perfect book to dip in and out of, with the information being presented in a fun and accessible way allowing children to truly feel like they are travelling alongside Dr Maggie.
Why not catch up with the rest of the blog tour for some more space insight.
Thank you to Buster Books for inviting me to join in with the blog tour and for sending me a gifted copy of the book in exchange for a review. ‘Dr Maggie’s Grand Tour of the Solar System,’ is available to buy now online or from any good bookshop.
