Praise For Astro Kittens: Into The Unknown

“Once dinosaurs have begun to seem passé, space is the place for many toddlers, and the Astro Kittens are excellent guides.”
Kirkus Reviews

"Bright, informative, and simple enough for the preschool crowd, this book is a fun way to introduce science-fiction concepts to young children. If you have ever thought about making a journey to a distant planet, how we might survive and what we might find- or even if you just like science- this is a fun read to share with preschoolers."
YA Books Central

"Into The Unknown looks at the things that are in space. Wormholes, what living arrangements might look like, light speed, the long sleep that we’d take getting out there and more are covered in the book. They’re done at a macro level so that adults can read it to small children. The content is timeless and the illustrations drawn kids in so that they can’t help but learn."
