Part Number: Things About Space Book
Things About Space - by Aston Smith
An interactive book of facts about the solar system, its objects, the planets and beyond - from the mind of a ten-year-old.
Aston Smith is a keen aspiring astronomer with a fascination with space. Living with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) at eight years old, he decided to create and publish a book containing facts about our solar system.
Now at ten years old, Aston wanted to expand on his first book by creating an updated interactive version packed with new thoughts, experiences, facts, and information about other objects like stars, black holes and exoplanets. His fascination with space and the expanding universe captures his interest, and he loves to share his knowledge with others. Aston has also refreshed his drawings digitally using his iPad.
Things About Space is an interactive book. Using a compatible device, readers can scan QR codes and listen to Aston narrate each page in his own voice. This is especially advantageous for young children who may struggle with some of the more complex object names and terminology.

A little about Aston
Aston Smith is a keen aspiring astronomer fascinated with space, time, and everything in the observable universe and beyond. So much so that at the age of 8 years old, he decided to create and publish a book containing facts about our solar system.
Living with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), Aston has found researching and creating his factual book about the space objects in our solar system both extremely challenging and satisfying. His fascination with space and the expanding universe captures his interest and provides him with focus and a welcome calm to his chaotic frame of mind.
