John MacDonald's educational picture book, Through the Milky Way on a PB&J, is a great way for younger children to learn about our galaxy. A brother and sister go planet hopping on a handcrafted space vessel that can be fueled by a special kid-ingredient. Loads of science facts are presented in a fun way for children to easily assimilate. The rhyming narrative makes the book a good candidate for a whole class read-aloud activity.
Learning in a fun way--what else can a parent or teacher want?
