If there is one aspect of science everyone of my boys has loved, it would be the study of space. I think there is something extremely enticing at looking out from our small spot in the universe and marveling at all of creation. As my decluttering efforts continue to take a bit of time, I elected to see what I could find at our local library to read with J.

Beyond Our Planet ~ Looking at Space Picture Books
This is a nice look at space history with astronaut Buzz Aldrin providing content. Topics begin with Isaac Newton’s theories on gravity and go to the future of Martian colonies and space tours. Throughout the pages, Buzz Aldrin gives his own personal touch to the book. I love the illustrations which really bring it all to life.
My eldest son LOVED The Magic School Bus TV show (and we’ve purchased the complete set on DVD.) The books are a great way to continue their interest in topics with the comic book style of writing. This book gives a tour of the solar system to its readers
Beyond Our Planet ~ Looking at Space Activity Books
This title is for a slightly older crew (grades 3 and up.) Otherwise, you can read selections to your child as well as make recipes that they pick out. Each experiment is explained well to make it easy to do with your child at home.
This title is geared for grades 5 to 8. The book is a chronological survey of astronomy which covers early observations and discoveries and concentrates on modern findings. Many of the activities are ones that my 6th and 9th grader can enjoy while the youngest watches. **Note, you can read this for free with Kindle Unlimited.**
Do you or your kids enjoy learning more about space, whether our solar system or beyond?
