Space has never been more fun with this new title from National Geographic KiDS. Geared toward the younger side of middle grade (7-10 years), the 128 pages are filled with colorful photos and art work, joke pages that will make you either groan or giggle, and loads of facts about the past and future of space exploration.

To start things off you are asked to pair the correct GALACTIC GLOSSARY word with its definition. This sets the stage for what you will experience the rest of the way.

Some of the highlights include a look at:

  • The Most Peculiar Planets (for sure you will not have heard of any of these like COROT-7B where the worst weather can be found on).
  • How Long is a Day on other planets. You won’t find any with 24 hours except our home planet.
  • Moving to Mars. What will it take for humans to thrive there?
  • How to create your own scale model of the solar system.
  • What Happens to Your Body in Space?
  • A Final Quiz to test your space smarts.

The fun volume will not only appeal to space loving kids, but also to those less enthralled with the universe. Perfect for that Christmas gift you have been looking for, CAN’T GET ENOUGH SPACE STUFF will provide hours of captivating learning and fun.


Coming up next week is another edition of MARVELOUS MIDDLE GRADE MONDAY! It’s here I share highlights from other individuals blogging about middle grade books. Many of the posts will have reviews, interviews, and tips on writing. Take a look at PAST MMGM POSTS.

It’s easy to join the lineup. All you have to do is email me the title of the book or feature and a link to your blog at gpcolo[at]gmail[dot]com

Make sure you put MMGM or Marvelous Middle Grade Monday in the subject line so it gets sorted accurately–and don’t forget to say what you’re featuring) You MUST email me your link by Sunday evening (11 PM Eastern Time) in order to be included in the list of links for the coming Monday.

*Please note: these posts are not a reflection of my own opinions on the books featured. Each blogger is responsible for their own MMGM content and I do not pre-screen reviews ahead of time, nor do I control what books they choose. I simply assemble the list based on the links that are emailed to me.
