Want to blast off with some fun books and board games? This unusual pairing is sure to launch your space adventurers into the stars. First we have the card game Space Team created by Stellar Factory. Like most rocket launches, this game is LOUD!! The entire game is about communicating with your astronaut crew to solve problems and build equipment and there is a lot of shouting. There is also an app you can use to play sound effects and a count down timer. If you don’t like quiet, boring board games you will love Space Team.
When you’ve had enough noise but your mission team wants more space, then hand them a copy of Field Trip to the Moon by John Hare. This wordless picture book is the perfect, quiet way to replicate the soundlessness of outer space. It’s also a fun way to spark the imagination of the curious mind about what is really out there.
Once you decide you want to buy a game, please look around for a local board game store!
For more book recommendations, I ALWAYS recommend visiting and buying from your local bookstore. One way you can buy online and support a local store is by shopping through Bookshop.org.
