An Introduction for Young Explorers is designed to inspire awe at the great big universe around us. Covering topics such as stars, planets, moons, alongside the basics of gravity and even how astronauts are able to eat and sleep in space; each page takes us through the complexities of the universe with a fresh and original style. This is a space book that not only teaches young explorers about what is out there but also serves as reminder about just how special we are here on planet Earth.
We begin with the enormity of the big bang. And travel from the big and inconceivable - slowly but surely getting smaller and smaller - until we reach the most spectacular thing in the universe: the tiny human who is holding Space Kids.
