Summary:
See space as you've never seen it before!

 Join one little astronaut and her space dog as they voyage through our solar system. Journey from the Sun, to the planets, asteroids and Kuiper belt, before folding out your glow-in-the-dark poster. Simply turn off the light to bring the incredible glow-in-the-dark ink to life.

Review: 

Downloaded through Netgalley thanks to the publisher, honest review ahead!

This is an informational / nonfiction book with illustrations. Some of the text is over illustrations that can make it hard for readers to read.

This is a partial image just to show the places where I'm talking about in the book:


The text in the sun and the text under the "BE" are over imagery that has a lot going on. This can be a struggle for some kids to read and will miss the information from it. This happens in other places throughout the book. But few have the text over less background stuff so it's easier to read. 

Otherwise, informative and engaging illustrations. This is probably going to be one of those bigger informative books so the font / background may not interfere with reading as much. But still wanted to point out that there are a few spots -- thankfully not every page -- that may be harder for students/ kids to read.
