Space Lift-the-Flap

Susie Brooks, illus. by Anthony Lewis. Kingfisher, $9.99 (16p) ISBN 978-0-7534-6957-6
In this addition to the Lift the Flap series, Brooks and Fisher explore mankind’s relationship with outer space, as small flaps allow readers to discover extra bits of information. After a brief tour of the solar system, Brooks examines the shuttle program, International Space Station, spacewalks, and visits to Mars and the moon, including the 2012 Curiosity rover mission. The accessible but detailed writing and friendly aesthetics of Lewis’s cartooning both do their part to make space feel like an exciting, even welcoming place. Ages 2–5. (Mar.)
