2 GREAT BOOKS FOR YOUNG EXPLORERS
“Exploration is really the essence of the human spirit” – Frank Borman.
Illustrated by Andrea de Santis and written by Steve Parker, Space Kids will inspire awe at the great big universe around us.
Space Kids introduces children (suitable for 5+) to concepts like the Big Bang, gravity, spinning galaxies, exploding stars and space junk with a fresh and fun style.
What I loved most about this book is that it also shows why our planet Earth is a wondrous place and that each tiny human that is holding and reading the book is truly very, very exceptional and unique.
What a stunning way to help all the young explorers understand more about the complexity and enormity of our world while reminding them how special they are!
Explore! is a fun and educational children’s book describing the real-life adventures of explorers past and present from across the world.
Children can learn about the Christopher Columbus’ voyage to the New World, James Cook’s journey through the Southern Seas and Amelia Earheart’s soaring adventures in the skies! And read about Mary Kingsley fighting off crocodiles in West Africa, Neil Armstrong risking everything to land on the moon, Ranulph Fiennes ignoring the dire warnings against traveling to both the South and the North Poles in a single expedition!
Explore! is easy to read and visually appealing, is packed with photographs and illustrations of the daring expeditions.
I have especially enjoyed all the background details such as expedition kits, supplies, and survival tips for the extreme conditions of each journey help children see how explorers pitted themselves against adversity to brave the wild and help shape our world.
