5.0 / 7.0

This book has been perfect for my preschooler who can’t wait to become an astronaut. The text is simple and brief, but actually very informative. The pictures are cute and have helped her to learn a lot about space. There’s a cute additional feature on the back cover as well: a place to add a picture of your child as an astronaut. This book is great for any future astronaut or curious kid!
