Aston's new book, Things About Space
Aston Smith is a keen aspiring astronomer with a fascination of space. Living with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) at the age of 8 years old, he decided to create and publish a book containing facts about our solar system.
Now at 10 years old, Aston wanted to expand on his first book by creating an updated interactive version packed full of new thoughts, experiences, and facts and information about other objects like stars, black holes and exoplanets. His fascination with space and the expanding universe captures his interest and he loves to share his knowledge with others. Aston has also refreshed his drawings digitally using his iPad.
Things About Space is an interactive book. Using a compatible device, readers are able to scan QR codes and listen to Aston narrate each page in his own voice. This is especially advantageous for young children who may struggle with some of the more complex object names and terminology.

A little about Aston
Aston Smith is a keen aspiring astronomer with a fascination of space, time, everything in the observable universe and beyond. So much so, that at the age of 8 years old, he decided to create and publish a book containing facts about our solar system.
Living with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), Aston has found researching and creating his factual book about the space objects in our solar system both extremely challenging and satisfying. His fascination with space and the expanding universe captures his interest and provides him with focus and a welcome calm to his chaotic frame of mind.
Plans for the future
Aston very much hopes to continue to pursue his interest in both astronomy and being an author. It has been an amazing experience for him and he has achieved so much at such an early stage of his life. Aston is already thinking about his next book. He wants to write about his struggles living with ADHD and autism and how it affects his life.
