The co-authors write with the same enthusiasm and energy they showed in telling The Story of Life (2015) but with less regard for accuracy or internal logic.

Synopsis

Before the Big Bang there was NOTHING AT ALL.
No galaxies, no space, no light and no sound.
Then suddenly, 13.8 billion years ago, IT ALL BEGAN…

This beautiful follow-up to The Story of Life brings to life the story of our universe for younger children. Travel back in time to the Big Bang, see galaxies and stars form, watch the birth of our planet and how life begins, join the first man on the moon, and wonder what mysteries are still waiting to be discovered.
