Life on Earth: Space is the perfect introduction to our universe for 5+-year-olds. With 100 questions and 70 flaps to lift, this beautifully illustrated board book keeps kids engaged while learning.

Lift the flaps to find the answers to common questions, such as, "How does a telescope work?," "Why can't a plane fly to space?," and "What is a dwarf planet?"
Topics covered include astronaut training, planets and stars, space-exploration equipment, and life in space, among many more. Scientific details are turned into simple, bite-size facts that the reader lifts the flaps to discover.
Heather Alexander’s colorful illustrations make each fact memorable, and the sturdy, board book format means that even the most hands-on learners will have fun playing with the book day after day.

Perfect to read out loud to your child, or to let them explore on their own, Life on Earth: Space offers a simple, fun way into astronomy and space exploration for little readers.
