BLAST OFF! By Shelly Unwin and Ben Wood

Are you ready for an out of this world adventure? Is your astronaut suit on? Is the rocket ship door closed? Get ready to blast off! into outer space and learn about the planets in our solar system. First stop is mega-hot Mercury, the planet closest to the sun… you couldn’t visit Mercury because, well you’ll have to read to find out! Blast Off! is such a joy to read aloud. Each page is filled with humour and brilliant rhythm and rhyme and the comical illustrations add so much to the story, opening up opportunity to explore and chat about what is happening in the pictures. Don’t forget to flip to the back of the book for interesting facts and information about each of the planets.

Key message:  Children are born ready to use and learn mathematics.
