In this “off the shelf” video review, Mr. Alex tells us all about Space Maps (Your Tour of the Universe), an interactive book for children ages 8-12.

With its large format, bright illustration and simple explanations, Space Maps is an irresistible invitation to outer space.

This gorgeous book draws on the latest discoveries of modern astronomy to take children to the farthest reaches of the universe through a mixture of circular maps and flat maps of the Solar System and the galaxies beyond. The book is organised into five parts, answering key questions: * What do we see with our naked eye? * Where are we in the universe? * What are the other planets like? * What do modern telescopes see? * Where is the sky studied from? From ancient views of the sky to the International Space Station, Earth to Pluto and Crab Nebulae to space suits, Space Maps has the universe covered.
