Praise for Astro Kittens: Cosmic Machines

“Once dinosaurs have begun to seem passé, space is the place for many toddlers, and the Astro Kittens are excellent guides.”
Kirkus Reviews

"Perfect for children who love outer space and learning about cool machines, this clever board book is a great introduction. With great information and wonderful illustrations, preschoolers are sure to enjoy this journey into outer space through the eyes of machines we use to explore it."
YA Books Central 5-star review

"Cosmic Machines takes the Astro Kittens and looks at the hardware that makes exploration possible, The Hubble Space Telescope, probes, satellites, International Space Station and the power needed to lift off are just a few things spoken about in this book. For the record, Newton’s second law of motion is in the book too, just in case any young rocket engineers want to double check their calculations."
