Description

This lively and vibrant picture book offers an introduction to the science between The Big Bang theory and other cosmology that explains the beginning of the universe. In a way, we are all as old as the stars and the universe itself. In fact, every bit of every one of us was created billions of years ago from the same stuff as stars. Stunningly bright illustrations and simple verse tell the story of the cosmic connections that tie human beings to the beginning of the universe. Simple, informative prose provides additional facts.
