A poetic read-aloud introduction to space for readers aged 2-5 years that, when opened and folded back, creates a freestanding galactic globe, fastened by a magnetic closure

Children are invited to explore space for the first time through rhyming verse and exquisite illustrations: from the Moon and the Sun they see every day, to the fiery and icy worlds of the eight planets in our solar system, and from asteroids and stars, to the galaxy we call home.

Secondary text offers more detailed information and facts, encouraging readers to learn not only about the celestial objects in our solar neighbourhood, but also about rockets, rovers, and other space technologies.

This informative homage to our galactic home, featuring frame-worthy art, is sure to inspire readers to explore the night sky and to learn more about astronomy.
