The Stuff of Stars
Publisher: Recorded Books
In an astonishing unfurling of our universe, Newbery Honor winner Marion Dane Bauer celebrates the birth of every child.
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.
In a poetic audiobook, Marion Dane Bauer takes listeners from the trillionth of a second when our universe was born to the singularities that became each one of us. The story captures the void before the Big Bang and the ensuing life that burst across galaxies. This audiobook reveals the composition of our world and beyond - and how we are all the stuff of stars.
