Aimed at a young audience, Rocket into Space is an exciting, hands-on book to help children understand the huge solar system surrounding us. Maddy and Jack zoom to find craters on Mars, storms on Neptune and rings around Saturn as well as investigating the other planets and their characteristics. Asteroids, comets, and the Milky Way Galaxy are also explored in detail. Flaps to flip over and wheels to turn ensure the reader is constantly engaged throughout the book.
The inclusion of three projects to make a crater, a solar system mobile, and how to create day and night will continue to keep the audience engaged in discovering the solar system. These projects require household items such as stationary, a shoe box, marbles, a soccer ball, a torch and more (not included). Two other activities to create a comet name and to consider the existence of Extra-Terrestrial creatures are also included.
Recommended for ages four and over. Not suitable for children under three years of age.
