What I loved: This book is delightfully full of helpful information. The topics end up being quite vast from solar systems and galaxies to the international space station and the probes people from Earth have sent to explore nearby planets. A particular favorite in our house is the moon descriptions and the probes that have been sent to the moon over time. It is so fascinating to find all of this information compiled graphically. The amount of text to illustrations is so great for children to explore, and there are enough details to really give a great introduction to all of these topics. They can also inspire children to seek out more information on topics that spark their interest - and there are a lot of fascinating facts in this book to spark a deeper interest.
The illustrations are awesomely cool, and there are so many details on each page. The large size makes it even more fun to explore and look at. This is a really well-researched and thorough book that is a must-have for fans of space.
Final verdict: SPACE MAPS is a fantastic collection of information about outer space and the universe. Whether already a fan of space exploration or just curious for more, this oversized book is a seriously cool way to learn more.
