Picture Books for Space Day!

Picture Books for Space Day!

The first Friday in May is National Space Day! So whether you have a budding astronaut or star gazer, there’s so many ways to celebrate space exploration!

I have always loved stars as a motif for decorating, and the idea that man can go into outer space has always fascinated me – God’s world extends so far beyond what we can see and imagine, but it’s exciting to catch a glimpse through our brave space explorers!

And I’ve also collected ten books about space, the moon, and astronauts that my children love to read. Some of them are fictional with references to the moon, and others are nonfiction or more specific to space.
