ABC Universe Children's Book Review

What it is



ABC Universe is a board book featuring cool space words for each letter of the alphabet. 

Who wrote it
ABC Universe is written by the American Museum of Natural History and published by Sterling Children's Books. Besides their main websites, you can also find AMNH on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more. You can also connect with Sterling Books on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.

Our impressions
One of the most noticeable things about this book are the amazing pictures. While there are a few diagrams, like one of the solar system, most of the pictures are actual photographs taken through telescopes! I also thought this book had a really great level of detail for preschoolers. The definitions and descriptions weren't over his head, but they did contain a lot of new information, which made it just right for him. I even learned new things myself! My toddler obviously wasn't ready to learn the defintion of a comet or a quasar, but he did like looking at the pictures and working on learning letters. Both of my sons seemed very interested in it and I think it'd be equally appropriate for girls. 

Pros
Real space photography!
Age appropriate definitions for preschoolers and early elementary students
Sturdy
Reasonably priced

Cons
Most kids old enough to enjoy these detailed space definitions already know their alphabet


The bottom line
Awesome book and highly recommended for kids 2-6ish who like space!
