Book Sharing Monday

Today we have chosen one of Hannah's new Christmas present books to share.  Star Seeker - A Journey to Outer Space, by Theresa Heine and Victor Tavares is a beautifully illustrated poetic tour of the solar system.

                                                        'With a zigzag of lightning

                                                         I'll spark Pluto's light,

                                                        And fireworks will blaze

                                                        In the dark of the night.'

At the end of the poem there are 6 pages of facts about the solar system, the planets and exploring space.

A fantastic book with just the right mix of science and story!

I love these bright illustrations. I keep hanging on to V's old books like this as they still have so much charm. Glad you had some nice books for Christmas, Hanna :)
