First Taste of Space: My Best Pop-Up Space Book by Clare Lloyd
WE LIVE ON PLANET EARTH.
EARTH IS ONLY A SMALL PART OF SPACE!
You're never to young to blast off into space, in Clare Lloyd's My Best Pop-up Space Book (Dorling Kindersley, 2015).
Beginning with Earth--our own place in space--author Lloyd gives youngsters a quick overview of the the planet that is home, describing how it spins on its axis to bring us night and day while revolving around the sun to bring us the seasons of each year, and backs up the narrative with a dramatic double gate-fold of the solar system. DK (Dorling Kindersley) pioneered those spot-art illustrations that have become their trademark, executed here by Caryn Jenner, pictures that seem to pop from the pages, and in this book they actually do with exciting pop ups and fold-out constructions that fire the imagination.
There is even a sound-effects button (the red spacecraft) that provides the sound track for this voyage to the moon, the sun, the planets, and the stars in outer space, and the book's movable devices demonstrate how the moon's phases change during its cycle.
Little readers also get to suit up and board their own rocket ship as astronauts and prepare to blast off!
ASTRONAUTS LIVE AND WORK IN SPACE.
EVERYTHING FLOATS IN SPACE!
IMAGINE EATING AND SLEEPING WHERE EVERYTHING FLOATS!
Preschoolers get to cruise past the moon rovers on Mars, rings of Saturn and the many moons of Jupiter, all in the three dimensions of DK's sturdy board book pages for the youngest space voyagers.
IS THERE LIFE ON MARS? THERE MIGHT HAVE BEEN IN THE PAST. LANDERS CALLED ROVERS LOOK FOR CLUES!
DK's My Best Pop-up Space Book gives youngsters their own first taste of the science of the stars. Just press that red button, open the book, and lift off!
