A 12-Year-Old is Publishing Her Third Book About the Beauty of the Universe

Bailey Harris was only eight when she was inspired by Neil deGrasse Tyson (who was hosting COSMOS at the time) to learn more about astronomy. It resulted in her writing a book (with her dad’s help) called My Name Is Stardust, about how all living things are made up of the same basic ingredients. Earlier this year, she released her second book, Stardust Explores the Solar System.

Now she’s working on the third: Stardust Explores Earth’s Wonders: Geology & Evolution.

Stardust Explores Earth’s Wonders brings back Stardust, the wide-eyed, science-loving heroine of the series. The book also introduces a new character, her little brother Vincent, who learns an exciting fact: every living thing on Earth is related! Addressing scientific concepts such as continental drift, fossil records, and evolution in a simple and understandable manner, Stardust explains to Vincent how all life on Earth — including people — evolved from earlier life forms, and how we are able to know this today.

It sounds incredible, and the illustrations, just as before, are gorgeous. If you like the concept, be sure to support Bailey’s book! It’s already surpassed its Kickstarter goal but that doesn’t mean you can’t support the project.
