Drawing in Space

Regular price $24.00

‘Drawing in Space’ takes us on an exciting journey beyond our world. It is part activity and part facts about all things space related – each planet is introduced in turn, moving on to stars, galaxies and eventually the universe… As well as drawings to complete, there are puzzles and stories and plenty of facts to spark a child’s imagination. Readers can make a planet fruit salad and their very own big bang, as well as read about poor old Pluto being re-classed as a dwarf planet. In this alternative space world, children can have snow ball fights with comets or go ice skating on uranus!

Did you know that the universe is expanding even as you read this?  That stargazing is really looking back in time millions of years, and that sound cannot travel in space, so you can be as noisy as you like?

With witty pen-and-ink illustrations, mazes, puzzles, and games, this activity book engages readers of all ages on every page with fun facts about the amazing realm beyond Earth's atmosphere.  Readers learn to calculate their age in Jupiter years, draw their own solar systems, and navigate out of a black-hole maze, while discovering more about planets, stars, comets, asteroids, and other celestial objects.

Paperback, 8.5 x 11 inches. 64 pages.  170 colour illustrations.
