Meet the Planets
About this deal
This is perfect to read and enjoy with anyone interested in learning about space. With its rhythmic rhyming couplets, the text encourages engagement from the audience as you use your knowledge about space to anticipate the next rhyme. The fact that it is a young girl who is interested in space and becomes an astronaut adds more layers to this extremely well presented book, squashing that 'scientist' stereotype. The study is the first to make predictions about weather conditions on K2-141b that can be detected from hundreds of light-years away with next-generation telescopes such as the James Webb Space Telescope. K2-141b’s surface is thought to be largely covered by a magma ocean (artist’s concept). Image via MediaInaf TV/ The Science Times.

Source: Modelling the atmosphere of lava planet K2-141b: implications for low- and high-resolution spectroscopy This picture book is a very enjoyable text to read-aloud as each planet is given a comical personality to reflect its assets - which is fun and humorous when it comes to adding that expression! Venus is the 'goddess of beauty' and Jupiter is 'king of the planets', whilst Saturn is 'your beautiful queen'. Bethan Woollvin has matched her illustrations to compliment and personify the words to contribute to the personalities of the planets.
Author Luke Palmer introduces his new book, Play (Firefly Press) about four boys growing up together, the challenges, the friendships, and what hap... So, what makes a good children’s book? The children’s buyer at Waterstones, Florentyna Martin, says: “The real gems are the ones that appeal equally to children and adults, and they are also perhaps the most difficult to get right. If a parent or guardian is going to read their child’s favourite story night after night (after night after night) then a strong narrative, good characters and engaging illustrations are key ingredients. The steady beat of a rhyme and the occasional dash of humour will also go a long way to sparking that first love of a book.”

The Costa Novel Award-winning Maggie O’Farrell’s debut illustrated children’s book is much anticipated. It is based on a story she told her children at bedtime, about a girl who creates her own guardian angel while playing one wintry day. O’Farrell said: “I have always thought of the picture book as a unique and pervasive art form, and one that has the potential to reach people from a very young age, sometimes staying with them for life.” This is the fourth book in Donaldson’s hugely successful rhyming adventure series What The Ladybird Heard, illustrated by Lydia Monks. This time, the crime-busting little ladybird is off to the seaside, but the two bad men, Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len, turn up to steal the mermaid’s flowing hair. You can even spot Donaldson and her husband Malcolm performing a children’s show on the beach, and Monks driving through the countryside, in “cameo” roles. Lava worlds like K2-141b are unknown in our solar system. Even Mercury isn’t close enough to the sun to have magma oceans on its surface. On Earth and Jupiter’s moon Io (and maybe Venus), the lava flows from volcanoes can give an idea of what it’s like, but it’s still not the same as having much of, or most of, a planet’s entire surface literally melted to create magma oceans.
