Inspired by ESA astronaut Tim Peake and his sons, and featuring an introduction from Tim, this is the perfect bedtime book!
Two space-mad little boys get ready for bed and say goodnight to their toy rockets, launch pads and planet mobiles, before being whisked away into space on an adventure beyond their wildest dreams . . .
Tim Peake is the first official British ESA astronaut. He left Earth on 15th December 2015 to begin a six month long mission aboard the International Space Station. His time in space has been watched by millions and he is inspiring a new generation of explorers, adventurers and questioners.
Goodnight Spaceman is the sixth book in Michelle Robinson and Nick East’s beloved series. Look out for Goodnight Digger, Goodnight Tractor, Goodnight Princess, Goodnight Pirate and Goodnight Santatoo!
I was excited to receive Goodnight Spaceman as it will be my son’s first book, okay so he is not 2 yet, he is only 4.5 months old but reading is such an important thing for me and I wanted to start reading to him very early on.
This book is a great bedtime book for children, boys and girls. It is a quick read with only 32 pages and has just a few words on each page making it a great starter book for children when they learn to read themselves too.
The illustrations are fantastic and colourful which captures children instantly, the words are big and it is a lovely little story.
My son actually loves me reading this to him; he gets rather excited flailing his legs about with glee.
There is also a CD with the book, which is read by ESA Astronaut Tim Peake which is absolutely amazing.
What is even more fascinating is that it is the first ever bedtime story to be recorded in SPACE! And with Tim Peake being practically a superstar amongst young boys at the moment, inspiring them to get their rockets and spaceship toys out and play with them and maybe even inspiring them to become astronauts when they are older it is a must read.
I would definitely recommend it, my son loves it and I am sure when he learns to read he will be reading it himself too.
