We’re truly in the Space Age – it seems every other week NASA has a new announcement. While some of us are wondering how they found water on Mars while we’re running out of water in California, one thing is clear: the frontier of space—and all of the technology, innovation, and discoveries that come with it—will be reached by near generations. Our kids may even have a part in it!

I know I’m being a little dramatic, but no matter the case, there’s no reason to not get your young ones interested in space early. Even if none of us set foot on a launch pad, we can always look up on a clear night and experience what space has to offer us. But when it’s 11:30 in the morning and your 2-year-old is throwing a fit because they want to see the stars, you might need some inspiration.

National Geographic is a powerhouse when it comes to popular science, nature, and education. Its name carries weight across the world, and every day people turn its magazine pages to immerse themselves in incredible photography and uncommon facts. With the National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book series, the NG has taken its immersive style and geared it towards young children. The result is the same – incredible pictures, great facts, and an amazing reading experience.

One of the latest in the First Big Book series is the First Big Book of Space. With easy-to-digest text and stunning illustration by David Aguilar, this is both an enjoyable read, and an excellent way to promote strong reading skills at an early age (it’s easy to read out loud, and words are simple enough for beginning readers to follow along or read themselves).

A description of the book’s contents direct from Amazon:

Chapters include:
• Chapter 1 focuses on the Earth, moon, and sun.
• Chapter 2 introduces kids to the other planets in our solar system.
• Chapter 3 explains other objects in our solar system, such as dwarf planets, comets, and asteroid belts.
• Chapter 4 voyages even farther afield, touching on concepts such as the universe, the Milky Way, stars, galaxies, and black holes.
• The last chapter delves into space exploration: humans on the moon, spaceships, the International Space Station, etc.


A great book for your growing library, and at under $8 for the hardcover copy, it’s a great steal too! Look below for an Amazon link to the hardcover edition, but there are other editions available (including Kindle). Perfect for the Modern Parent!
