5.75 / 7.0

My kids already loved the Ingela P. Arrhenius board books in this series, and were thrilled when we got this installment! My pre-schooler loves astronauts and all things space, and my one-year-old loves to be in charge of lifting the felt flaps. I love the simplicity of the book and the cute illustrations. It’s a win-win-win!

5.0 / 7.0

I really love that the flaps in this book are made of felt–a fun texture and seems like it will hold up pretty well! Beyond that, this is a cute board book about an astronaut and outer space. I’m pretty much always a fan of books with mirrors in them (at the end, in this one)–kids love the mirrors!
