    I would totally share these with my 9-year-old twins who are obsessed with space! We’ve watched all of Cosmos–twice. They can tell you facts about the solar system. We watched the New Horizons contact live and they watch as many rocket launches as they can. The photos in these books are stunning– and how fun are the pencils?!?

    I would share all these books with my 5th grade students. We have just opened a new 5th grade school in an existing older school. We do not yet have a library and we have a new Space unit in our science curriculum. We have 18 classes of 5th graders.Thank you so much for this chance to expand our Space knowledge.

    I would share these with my oldest son. He has been obsessed with anything about space since he was 3. It has been a struggle at times with his Aspergers, but him being able to talk about his favorite subject helped us through some rough patches!
