This week’s children’s book of the week is the award-winning Look Up! by Nathan Bryon and Dapo Adeola. It tells the story of Rocket, a girl who loves astronomy, and her big brother, who prefers his phone. We found five online things to do that are all inspired by the story.
- Look Up! Storytime and draw-along
First up is this reading of the story on YouTube, plus a draw-along feature with illustrator Dapa Adeola. You might recognise the author Nathan Bryon from his TV sitcom work!
- Build a spaceship craft activity
- Mae Jemison colouring sheet
In the story, Rocket is inspired by her hero Dr Mae Jemison. We found this awesome colouring sheet celebrating the astronaut’s achievements.
