delightful exploration of science and careers
FUTURE ASTRONAUT is a completely charming and brightly colored book that compares astronauts to babies. For instance, astronauts eat from plastic packs, and babies know how! Each spread features a fact about astronauts paired with the comparison to baby. This board book is absolutely delightful as baby learns the skills needed to be an astronaut as well as how he or she already has many of them.
What I loved: This book is full of diversity, both in astronauts and babies, showing men/boys and women/girls from a variety of ethnicities/races. The full page images are full of color and simple designs that appeal to the youngest of readers. The facts are also really interesting, both for little ones and their parents, including some things I did not know, which is always an added bonus. Babies and young toddlers will love looking at the babies pictured as well as exploring a new concept- astronauts! The scientific slant is always enjoyable.
Final verdict: This delightful board book is sure to charm babies and toddlers as well as their parents, introducing science and careers. With vivid, full page images, there is a lot for young readers to explore and enjoy. I highly recommend for budding scientists you may know. In fact, as the book shows, baby may already have many of skills needed to become an astronaut!
