I love this book. The illustrations are adorable and my son loves the story. This fits perfectly with the rest of our stories but is by far my favorite.

The storyline is amazing - simple enough for younger children, complex enough topics for older kids as well. It’s going on my recommendation list for all kids!

In simple text and beautiful illustrations, My Name is Stardust elegantly captures what Neil DeGrasse Tyson called “the most astounding fact” — that we are literally stardust, and that this connects us to everything that ever was and ever will be. A captivating addition to the literature of science and wonder for the youngest minds.

Dale McGowan, author of Parenting Beyond Belief and Raising Freethinkers

Curiosity about a few universal questions lies at the base of the uniquely human exploration of the cosmos which we call science. Who am I? Where did I come from? My Name Is Stardust captures the excitement of its young author’s exploration of her world and its origins

Eric Meikle, Former Education Project Director at the National Center for Science Education

There is no fact in science that is more awe-inspiring and deeply meaningful than that we are made of stardust, the remnants of exploded stars billions of years ago that through the process of evolution have turned into conscious creatures called humans. My Name Is Stardust is the best children’s book that captures the beauty of this fact of nature and one that should be read by every child on the planet to put into perspective our place in the cosmos.

Michael Shermer, Publisher Skeptic magazine, columnist Scientific American, author The Moral Arc

Stardust's curiosity and excitement for the solar system is a powerful inspiration for young readers. This character is a great role model for the future female scientists! Her sweet narrative, combined with the beautiful illustrations, will help children fall in love with space!

Dr. Alessandra Abe Pacini, Space Scientist at the Arecibo Observatory, author of Girls InSpace

My Name is Stardust begins with a question, 'what are we made of?’ and proceeds to investigate — creatively, humorously, and sincerely — the awesome answer. In fact, Bailey and Douglas have captured the most compelling part of science: we scientists get to use creativity to convert curiosity into knowledge that feeds both wonder and appreciation for our universe. I know this unique book will nourish the next generation of scientists and science-appreciators.

Ariel Marcy, evolutionary biologist, educational game designer of Go Extinct!, and founder of STEAM Galaxy Studios

This sequel to My Name is Stardust focuses on our solar system and its diversity of planets, moons, and other bodies. Aimed at early readers, this is a concise and well-illustrated introduction to our local star and its companions. Once again the enthusiasm and wonder expressed by “Stardust” reflect the feelings shared by those who have devoted their lives to the scientific study and understanding of our corner of the universe.

"Belief" in Facts?

"Belief" in Facts?

It is important for the scientifically educated populace to help spread the beautiful, important truths in science to those who would dismiss important scientific facts as mere “beliefs.” Facts such as evolution, gravity, and the germ theory of disease are extremely different from “beliefs” in things such as Bigfoot, magic, and aliens.
