Alone by Scott Stuart

Alone by Scott Stuart

Every now and then you stumble across a children’s book that just seems perfect. This is how I felt when I first read Alone by Scott Stuart to my nearly four-year-old son.

First of all, Alone is visually stunning. The illustrations are simple, but brightly coloured and very engaging. They sit perfectly alongside the flowing rhyme of the story. And what a story it is!

On a surface level, this book provides a really great basic introductory understanding of the solar system for young children. It covers off on all the planets and the sun, and the concept of how they orbit around each other.

Underneath the educational content is a really beautiful story of finding friendship. Earth feels different to all the other planets, and cannot find one she really “clicks” with. Then something explosive happens that changes her life forever.

The book unfolds into a wonderful message for its young readers – that often from adversity, great things can grow.
