You Choose In Space: the most perfect Space themed book to get kids talking and expressing opinions!

“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!”

The You Choose books are a firm favourite in schools, so when I heard there was going to be a new one, I knew I needed to snap it up! Thank you so much to Sarah from Puffin for sending me a review copy. It is certainly a very popular book at school.

These books are brilliant to use with children of all ages, they are a brilliant stimulus for talking or writing. The EYFS team at school in particular are very fond of these books! They’re attractive and they’re brilliant for vocabulary. This space themed one fits in brilliantly with a space theme too! 

If you’re unfamiliar with these books, the way they work is that each double spread is something else to choose from, for example the pages below encourage children to talk about the outfit they would wear on a new planet:

This page asks the children which job they would like to do aboard the ship:

These books are so brilliant for getting children to talk and not just with the little ones, the older children (my KS2 children) love talking about it! Brilliant for justification and description.

Most importantly though, these books are brilliant for enjoying reading! 

Which outfit would you choose?
Would you like to visit space?

Thank you so much to Puffin for sending me a review copy of this book! It is going down very well at school!
