Picture Books by Theme: Space

A list of picture books on the theme of Space. We've been using these at school to support classroom learning. I'm finding lots of aliens but none on the solar system.

The Loon on the Moon by Chae Strathie, Illustrated by Emily Golden

Beegu by Alexis Deacon

We’re Off to look for Aliens by Colin McNaughton

Aliens: An Owner’s Guide by Jonathan Emmett

Welcome to Alien School by Caryl Hart

Mungo and the Spiders from Space by Timothy Knapman

Where on Earth is the Moon? by Ruth Martin

UFO Diary by Satoshi Kitamura

Blackest Hole in Space by Penny Little
If you have any other suggestions for this list, please share them in the comments. I'm always looking to develop our collection.

When I was on holiday in Canada and browsing through a huge bookstore like they do over there, I had a crush on a picture book cover... So much that I bought it, and I ended up absolutely loving this book!

It's Binky the Space Cat by Ashley Spires.

It's not about space per say (it's a metaphor), but it's cute and fun and I thought I'd share it with you. You can check out some extracts on google images apparently. And the book is on Goodreads, if you want to check out the summary. :)

Have a lovely day, Becky!
