Crayola Out-Of-This-World Space Colors

Crayola Out-Of-This-World Space Colors is an appealing and colorful picture book for young readers about space, planets, and features of our universe. Due out 6th Oct 2020 from Lerner Publishing, it's 32 pages and will be available in hardcover (library bound), paperback, and ebook formats.

There are very few people who don't feel a sense of awe and fascination looking up at the night sky. This beautifully rendered short book will be a fast favorite with the youngest. The colorful photographs almost pop off the page. The text is simple, descriptive, and easy to follow.

This would make a good reading circle, library, classroom, or bedtime read. The author has included an abbreviated glossary, resource links for further reading, and a short index. The pictures and text are factual and sourced mostly from NASA and other academic institutions. The crayons in the illustrations show the color names on the labels, but there are no coloring pages or blank pages accompanying the photos (easily remedied with a blank pad of paper for drawing purposes).

Four stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
