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.
