Use a beautiful picture book to combine space with storytelling
The Planet Gods by Jacqueline Mitton and Christina Balit (Frances Lincoln, £6.99 PB) is a beautifully blended story of facts and legends about our solar system. It will easily satisfy the needs of a child’s enquiring search for truth about our planets, while simultaneously offering a delightful and lyrical exploration of the myths surrounding them. Each planet is personified as a legendary god and narrated in the first person, giving it a voice that encourages children to empathise with its characteristics and understand its place in the solar system.
