Spacemania: Encyclopedia of the Universe is a non-fiction children's book that offers a captivating journey through the wonders of space.

Each two-page spread bursts with colorful illustrations and fascinating information. The information is divided into small tidbits that won't overwhelm readers.

There are some true highlights in this book. It was interesting to learn about the 26 famous constellations and how they got their names. The book highlights key figures in space history with short biographies. For example, before reading this book I had never heard of astronomer Claudius Ptolemy or how he helped name many of the constellations we know today. The 4-page rocket timeline was full of detail and showcases the world's incredible leap forward in space exploration, with detailed illustrations of iconic rockets from the 1950s to the 2000s.

Spacemania: Encyclopedia of the Universe is an engaging non-fiction book perfect for curious readers who love space.
