My oldest daughter has always loved outer space. When she was small, we would go to the library and look through shelf after shelf, picking out everything with a moon or stars on the cover. I took her to visit ewASA and the Space Museum and downloaded a constellation app for our iPad. We even covered her ceiling with glow in the dark stars. And of course, we read endless books about the sun, moon, stars, and space (and still do). Here are some of our favorites.
