About the author:

The American Museum of Natural History in New York City is one of the largest and most respected museums in the world.  Since the Museum was founded in 1869, its collections have grown to include more than 32 million specimens and artifacts relating to the natural world and human cultures.  The Museum showcases its collections in the exhibit halls and, behind the scenes, more than 200 scientists carry out cutting-edge research.  It is also home to the Hayden Planetarium, which enjoys a proud legacy that has blended scientific scholarship with innovative public outreach for much of the past century.  Approximately five million people from around the world visit the Museum each year.  Plan a trip to the Museum, home of the world's largest collection of dinosaur fossils, or visit online at

Unwrapping the content...

This oversized board book is unique and educational. Perfect for little ones to explore.  Each letter  of the alphabet represents something directly related to space.  The letters are large and colourful, perfect for tracing with your finger or being lined up with cheerios to be gobbled down later after the letter is identified.  

The photographs are big, eye-catching and stunning.  Included beside each letter is an informative description of all 26 terms presented there.  Both young and old will learn when sharing this "awe"some book together.   Yes, there are things in this world and universe that still create a sense of awe when revealed to you.

What a perfect introduction to space for your small child.  He will be mesmerized by comets, flares, supernovas, telescopes, planets and much, much more.  Who knows?  You may be sharing this book with a future astronaut or astronomer.  How fun would that be? I highly recommend this book.

Read on and read always!

It's a wrap.
