Astro the Alien series “A Beginning Reader Book”

Astro the Alien Visits Desert Animals
Written by Emily Sohn
Illustrated by Carlos Aon

My Review: The Astro the Alien series is a Beginning to Read Book published by Norwood Press. I like this series as it is simple to read and filled with a lot of activities and suggestions at the end to help children develop both reading recognition skills and comprehension skills. In this book Astro and his friends Ben and Eva fly to the dessert in Astro’s space pod. They bring their camping gear and spend a night. They get to see animals in the day and those that come out at night. They also talk about climate and how it effects the dessert and animals. The illustrations were well done. They are bright, colourful and large so you can see the animals clearly. A good book for a family library and primary classroom. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.

In this book Astro and his friends Ben and Eva fly to the forest in Astro’s space pod. They want to play hide and seek in the trees. While Eva counts, Astro and Ben hide. Because they hide in different places, we are introduced to different animals such as in trees and tree stumps, while Eva finds all sorts of animals instead of finding Ben and Astro. The illustrations were well done. They are bright, colourful and large so you can see the animals clearly. A good book for a family library and primary classroom.

My Review: The Astro the Alien series is a Beginning to Read Book published by Norwood Press. I like this series as it is simple to read and filled with a lot of activities and suggestions at the end to help children develop both reading recognition skills and comprehension skills. In this book Astro and his friends Ben and Eva fly to their grandparent’s farm in Astro’s space pod. Once they arrive, they get to see the farm at work. From milking cows, shearing sheep to searching for a lost piglet, they get to see many of the farm animals. They even get to visit the neighbouring farms to see not only other animals but buildings and some crops. The illustrations were well done. They are bright, colourful and large so you can see the animals clearly. A good book for a family library and primary classroom.
