Little Lit Book Series: Space

September was all about space.  These are some of the books that ushered in this month’s theme.  You can also search for “space” on our Archives page to take a look at the other books that were posted during the month.

Little Lit Book Series: Space

From @averyandaugustine ― 

This month’s theme for #littlelitbookseries is space (as in the final frontier).

Our favorite professor is back to take us on a tour of the solar system, with opportunities to learn intriguing attributes about some of our neighboring planets, like how Saturn can float on water. Clear, concise and simple definitions of the parts of the solar system make this a terrific first book about space.

Professor Astro Cat’s Solar System was written by Dominic Walliman, illustrated by Ben Newman and published by Flying Eye Books.

We're all about space at the #littlelitbookseries this month, and this deceptively simple book brings the far near. It's a little drop of light. Maybe you need that today? 💫 | STARS by Mary Lyn Ray and Marla Frazee

We are really enjoying this #NationalGeographic Little Kids First Big Book of Space during bed time reading this month. And just in time as #littlelitbookseries kicks off an #OUTERSPACE theme. Super engaging and informative, my 5-year-old is quite captivated by the photos and easy-to- follow language! Such a great resource for my 4th grader, too.

You could probably find an atlas -- or at least a map -- in just about every room in our home. How fun is it to travel and discover new places, in real life or through books?! This month, the @littlelitbookseries is traveling to space and I've got just the ticket with SPACE ATLAS: A VOYAGE OF DISCOVERY FOR YOUNG ASTRONAUTS.  As you can probably tell from the cover, the book features engaging and bright illustrations that take the reader in and around the solar system. Topics include the planets, the moon, constellations, the distant universe, and space flight, and there are six fold out pages featuring answers to scientific inquiries related to space, colorful charts, and a host of characters. You may just get lost in space in this one.

This month’s #littlelitbookseries theme is space. I have been wanting to share How the Meteorite Got to the Museum by Jessie Hartland, about a meteorite that orbited the earth for over 4 billion years before plummeting to earth on October 9, 1992 (my 14th birthday🤗). The story tracks the meteorite on its descent to earth and how it came to be in the museum.  We have enjoyed this story and the wonderful illustrations immensely.

For this month's #littlelitbookseries, we're directing our literary telescopes toward space, which gives me the perfect excuse for a big-little #booktwinning post starring two very different but equally intrepid fictional astronauts on the Red Planet. Jon Agee is one of our favourite #picturebook creators, and Life on Mars doesn't disappoint with its clever visual humour where everyone is in on the joke — except the protagonist. As for The Martian, I absolutely loved the Ridley Scott-directed movie adaptation, so this book is high up on my to-read pile. If you've read it, let me know if it's as good or better than the movie!

We love space themed books around here, so it was hard to narrow down our pick for this month's #littlelitbookseries space theme.  We decided to share a new book that just came out this year with a focus on a woman's contribution to the space program-specifically to the Apollo 11 mission.  This book follows the life of Margaret Hamilton as a young girl full of curiosity and questions to a woman mathematician who teaches herself to write computer code and who becomes a software engineer essential to the first lunar landing. 🌚🙌🏼 | Margaret and the Moon by Dean Robbins and

My son loves learning about outer space so to have this be our theme for #littlelitbookseries is a delight for us. Our selection is Solar System by Jill McDonald  Although it's a board book, it's packed full of essential information regarding our solar system, starting with stars, moon, sun, and a brief description of the planets. It's also a perfect size to fit inside a backpack or a bag in case of a long wait at the DMV with a five-year-old.

From @writesinla ― 

For our #littlelitbookseries SPACE theme, I give you The Care and Feeding of a Pet Black Hole by Michelle Cuevas  a story with space and science in spades. (Out next week.) While one of the funniest, most creative MG books I've read, it's also at its heart about the sad darkness of loss. It's told in second person, with Stella Rodriguez addressing her father who has passed away. The technique is super effective and from the very first paragraph, this dazzling narrator drew me in. This would also pair nicely with The Remarkable Journey of Charlie Price by Jen Maschari as they share themes of loss of a parent and the role of memory.
