Space, the final frontier, the frontier to adventure that still holds our collective imagination as adults to this day. We just don’t know what’s out there! It’s so exciting to speculate about it! If you think that’s funny for you, for a kid it would be thousand-fold funnier.
The natural sense of wonder and adventure of kids is always wildly stimulated by their imagination working out what just might be out there and how they could be the one who finds out. Put the kids to dream about the stars again with these books about space.
