Celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the moon landing with little ones by lifting the felt flaps to discover four hidden space-themed friends. Then find the mirror under the final flap! Parents love these books because they are simple yet robust, and little readers adore them because they’re fun and easy to play with.
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!
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!
