"Goodnight Spaceman" by Michelle Robinson and Nick East (with letter from Tim Peake!) (Picture Puffin)

Know what we love? Seeing kids as excited about space as Charlotte gets. Space is that mystical place that only a select few get to explore, but it holds children's attention and fulfils their fantastic imaginations like nothing else...
So we join Michelle Robinson, Nick East and a very special guest - ESA Astronaut Major Tim Peake for an interstellar storytime, as two plucky little boys see their daddy off on a rocketship bound for the International Space Station.

The two boys dream of what it would be like to hop in a shiny red rocket and follow their dad up there, to cavort in Zero-G and enjoy (if that's the right word) space food!

Michelle's rhymes are dreamy, everything she writes seems purposely designed to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end, as her lilting verse sees the boys safely on their journey to rendezvous with their astro-dad, and then back to earth in time for tea.

This is the sort of cuddly bed-time book that is just completely irresistible. With a fab letter from Tim Peake himself at the front of the book, your little space buddies are going to adore every millimetre of this book, guaranteed.

Charlotte's favourite bit: Coping with Zero-G on the ISS

Daddy's favourite bit: A brilliant book to read aloud, and make us dream dreamy dreams about shooting off into space.
