Ukraine Space Hotel

Recently, the book Ukraine Space Hotel by Australian writer Jade Metre was published in Ukraine. Its illustrations  were created by participants of the Noosphere Space Art Challenge. On March 26, as part of Ukraine’s National Children’s Reading Week, the book was presented to young readers at the Dnipropetrovsk Regional Children’s Library.

National Children’s Reading Week is an event that takes place every year in all children’s libraries in the country. Its goal is to interest children in books and popularize reading. At the Dnipropetrovsk Regional Children’s Library, it was opened with an educational and entertainment event titled Book trip to the Ukraine Space Hotel. The event was a reading of the bilingual book Ukraine Space Hotel by the Australian writer Jade Metre. It is a fairy tale inspired by  drawings by young Ukrainians to encourage children to dream and strive for the stars.

As part of the event, the library and Noosphere Association organized entertainment, quizzes, and games for the young visitors. In particular, with the help of the Happy English club, children learned English vocabulary about space. The little guests danced, sang, and guessed riddles. They then learned to make rockets from colored paper and launch them. 

All participants received an exciting afternoon out, along with gifts from Noosphere Association.
