Under the Stars: Astrophysics for Bedtime by Lisa Harvey-Smith, illustrated by Mel Matthews

Want to take a fun and educational journey throughout our night sky?

Explore our solar system from the comfort of your cozy bedroom… Find out why the sky is blue… Fly around a black hole and peer inside! Learn why Jupiter has stripes…

I was first intrigued by this book because I read that an actual astrophysicist wrote it so I knew this book was going to be beneficial as well as fun to read. Having read this with a young audience, I found it quite exciting and clever how the author approached mysteries of outer space. The illustrations were beautiful and I see this book to be an ideal gift for children ages 6 and up or for curious adults such as myself.

With special thanks to Melbourne University Press for sending me a copy of this book for review.
