This is a fun, interactive, flap-tastic book that my eldest daughter couldn't wait to read. 
True to Usborne, it's filled with facts and brilliant illustrations all about Stars. 
My daughter is 3 and the language used through out the book was age appropriate and very informative. She absolutely loves these book which are child non fiction friendly. 
A big thumbs up from us.

This beautiful book really captivated my young children. The subject matter is quite a tricky one for parents to explain simply but the lift the flap style does it perfectly. If your child is a budding astronomer or is keen to know more about the night sky, this is a perfect first read.

Children with a thirst for knowledge will absolutely love this book- full of informative facts (I even learnt a bit) without being too heavy, great illustrations and an element of fun with lifting the flaps which come in a range of ideas and designs. My 3 year old loves it- received today and already read it 3 times, thanks Toppsta.

I will I absolutely love Usborne books. I home nursery my daughter so I love early learning fun educational books like this. Its very high quality print which is what you would expect from usborne. The blue front cover with lovely illustrations of two children was very inviting for Sophie. She loved opening the sturdy flip flaps, brilliant for exploring and keeping her interested. A beautiful education in stars in a simple bur informative layout. A simple sentence or two on each page. Kept in little ones language levels. Lovely illustrations. Very charming. An absolutely must on he bookshelf from 2 years up until school age. Sophie has loved this book.

A brilliant book for curious young minds. This has all the kinds of questions my daughter asks about stars in just enough detail to keep her interested. She enjoyed the unusual flaps and the pictures are great. We read it 3 time back to back when we first got it out.

Lovely lift the flap book, lots of information displayed in a fun way. The book is filled with lots of lovely bright and clear illustrations.
 It appeals to both my 2 year old and my 6 year old. 
It’s a nice sturdy book which I think would stand the tests of being in a heavy handed toddlers possession.

Brilliant book! We are huge fans of the Usborne range of flap fact books. This one taught me a few new facts about stars too. Both kids loved lifting the flaps to find out the answers to the questions asked. Lovely addition to our learning book section

I read this book to my son age 5 and my daughter age 3 and they both love this book! It is factual and fun at the same time with colourful illustrations and different shaped flaps. My son has been telling me some of the facts he has learnt about the stars days after reading this book. He has also enjoyed reading the book to himself. It is a favourite with my daughter too. Highly recommended.

You can never go wrong with an usborne book. They are sturdy and made to last. The illustrations are beautiful and kept my two yr old neice interested. My five yr old nephew enjoyed the book as it had explained questions himself might of had. Both enjoyed the flaps on each page which added to the fun. Beautiful little book.

My son thinks this book is amazing and he adores lifting up all the flaps and seeing what is underneath. The book explains the different star shapes as well as what stars are, if it is possible to travel to stars by rocket and why. I think we will get a lot of use out of this book. It is both fun and educational.

My son loves stars and this was perfect for him, Usborne did it again! A very well-thought-out book, nice lift the flaps and they don't even notice they are learning: they are having fun. The kids have so many questions and this book answers many of these questions in an interesting way, so that even small kids can understand. I also learned something new with this book The only thing that I think was still confusing for my son was the names given to constellations, he didn't really think they matched so well, but that's just how it is really, at least they've shown they're named and he'll probably look into the sky (on a clean night...) differently now.

We love this book.
There are lots of different ways of using flaps that kept Georgie interested throughout. 
There were lots of facts that we could compare to real life experiences.
The illustrations were detailed with lots of things to spot and find.
Another Usborne success!
