What is Up In Space? A Children’s Book by David Bullock

Author, David Bullock

Hi everyone,

I’m super excited to share with you a brand new children’s book called What is Up In Space? by David Bullock.

I live on the Space Coast of Florida and can walk out my backdoor whenever I hear a launch and see the rocket blasting off into space. It is thrilling and never gets old! I love space! So, that’s why I’m excited to share with you this book about space for children today.

Take it away, David…

N E W  Y O R K (3/17/2020) — Fourteen year veteran space writer David Bullock created a children’s  books on space and space exploration at the end of last year. The children’s book has a broad look at what can be found in outer space. Called What is Up In Space?, the book can be found on most online retailers sites in print and also in electronic form on the Nook. Bullock has also published a non-fiction book called 2008-2018: A NewSpace Primer.

Now an Analyst at the business intelligence company NewSpace Global, Bullock previously founded the first digital edition on space and space exploration, Space Lifestyle Magazine. These two books are his first.

Bullock originally learned how to write children’s books from New York children’s book author Shirley Graves. Her books are available in print at most online retailers. He said, “Graves gave me the background and experience to write children’s books. She taught me how to use vocabulary and a storyline sensitive to children’s needs. Many people have expressed appreciation of our books and Graves is a children’s book award winner. I hope many children enjoy the story of space.”

Excited about entering the children’s book field, Bullock hopes both parents and children will enjoy his story about space and what is out there as well. The book is an excellent introduction to the topic of space and it also encourages readers to do searches on the Internet for concepts and terms that the book brings up. Bullock keeps the book simple for young readers, yet allows room to grow in the digital age.

Rinaldo Florendo, an illustrator from the Philippines, created the images for the book. Florendo is an experienced illustrator and has worked creating images for kid’s books many times before working with Bullock. Bullock was introduced to Florendo’s work while he was working as an assistant for Graves. She hired Florendo to create the images for her book, My Wonderful Friends. Both Bullock and Graves were pleased with Florendo’s work and Bullock decided to work with him for his first children’s book.

The book can be found at Amazon on the following link: https://www.amazon.com/What-Up-Space-David-Bullock/dp/0578537273/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=david+m+bullock&qid=1583612550&sr=8-2

  1. You’re welcome! I hope through this book, I could make the topic of space as interesting as it is for me to learn about it everyday.

    1. I hope others will answer this intriguing question. My guess is if the parent is interested in space, they try to find a book or project or something to interest their child. But I’m not sure how much literature for children is out there for kids on space and whether they find it interesting or not.
      Of course, I live on the Space Coast in Florida and everyone is naturally interested when a rocket goes up! You can see it anywhere along the Space Coast. And many parents work in the industry.

      1. I really don’t know the answer to this. When I worked for the publication Space Lifestyle Magazine, I would have data on those who came to the site and signed up for a contest the publication held. One had to be 18 years or older to enter the contest. While I have lots of data on adults and space from nearly 15 years ago, I don’t have any data on children, especially current data I could use today.
