There’s plenty here to keep a young space enthusiast occupied: a page on Morse code for sending secret messages, quiz pages on matching images, a log page for recording Moon phases over a month, an experiment to collect "space dust," instructions for building a balloon rocket, and much more. In fact, there are probably enough activities jammed in this book to keep a kid occupied for a span equivalent to several space missions.
I love a book with pencil puzzles and space to write your own story, and the very cool "Professor Astro Cat's Intergalactic Activity Book" by Zelda Turner and illustrator Ben Newman is a pleasure to look at and to hold — not to mention filled with interesting facts and intriguing activities.
