Book of the Week
This book encourages children to choose how they would like to live in space - what kind of home they might have, what they might wear etc. The text is simple and the spreads are colourful and imaginative. This is great one to share with children and it can generate lots of discussions about the pictures and what life in space might be like. Highly recommended.

Zoom off into space for an adventure where YOU CHOOSE what happens next. Which alien would you most like to be friends with? And what fantastically freaky food will you decide to munch for lunch?The possibilities are infinite in this mesmerising creative toolkit which will inspire children from 3 up to make their own stories time and again - a spectacular sequel to the bestselling You Choose - it's out of this world!


Nick Sharratt and Pippa Goodhart have written a great book in You Choose in Space. This is the first You Choose I have read and I have to say I was very impressed with it.

As a stand-alone read, it was a great one to share with my children and generated lots of discussions and chat about the pictures and using imagination to talk about what life in space might be like. I can see how this read would be different every time and how children would get something different from it during every read.

I think this would be a great book to use as a guided reading text in class with KS1 and lower KS2 children as a way to generate discussion and speaking and listening skills. I would definitely use it as a stimuli for sentence writing and there is a vast scope for its use with descriptive writing.

I will certainly be looking up other You Choose books as I think they will be a great resource to use in class and with the unmistakable Nick Sharratt illustrations, this will always be a popular choice.
