Yesterday we got our first glimpse of a real black hole in outer space (see the picture here). Isn’t it fascinating to think of all the possible things that could be up there in outer space, and on the other planets?
If the picture happened to spark an interest in outer space in your kids, it’s a great way to open up a discussion about the galaxy with these informative Children’s Books About Space and Planets.
This book list will teach the kids about stars, galaxies, planets – and other things related to outer space.
