This non-fiction book is aimed at children aged 7+, but my 4 year old daughter was fascinated by it. I really feel there’s something in here for everyone, even adults!

This book discusses each planet in turn, but there is also so much more within its pages. Budding astronomers can enjoy delving into the history of the Space Race and finding out about the International Space Station.
