The stuff of stars by Marion Dane Bauer( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1,646 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before the universe was formed, before time and space existed, there was ... nothing. But then ... BANG! Stars caught fire and burned so long that they exploded, flinging stardust everywhere. And the ash of those stars turned into planets. Into our Earth. And into us. The author takes readers from the trillionth of a second when our universe was born to the singularities that became each one of us, while illustrations capture the void before the Big Bang and the ensuing life that burst across galaxies. A blend of science and art, this picture book reveals the composition of our world and beyond - and how we are all the stuff of stars
