Wish you could teach your toddler about outer space and the basis for science-fiction? If so- or you just love science- ASTRO KITTENS: INTO THE UNKNOWN is for you. This book has fantastic, brightly-colored, and full page illustrations of the ideas presented in the text. Each spread is dedicated to a topic, such as wormholes, suspended animation, and even alien life forms. 

The cats in space suits feature on each page along with plenty of stars/sun and planets, making this a delightful visual journey as well. While some of the ideas are pretty complex, the text has simplified them somewhat. This book ends up being educational for parents as well as for their children- and many of the ideas form the basis for science-fiction which also adds interest!

What I loved: The illustrations in this are absolutely fantastic, and the text is very fun and informative. Bringing scientific concepts to children in an exciting way is a noble venture, and this is a great example. I love the cats and the thought-provoking principles that come into the book (e.g. habitable planets- some might be covered in lava!) which can spark imagination and an early love of science.

What left me wanting more: As a small point, some of the words are a little too difficult for the preschool crowd (such as inhospitable), and the text is rather small, which makes it a little hard to read when little ones are holding. However, this is a great way to learn some new words (with parental help) and could even teach parents something new!

Final verdict: Bright, informative, and simple enough for the preschool crowd, this book is a fun way to introduce science-fiction concepts to young children. If you have ever thought about making a journey to a distant planet, how we might survive and what we might find- or even if you just like science- this is a fun read to share with preschoolers.
