Top 10 Astronomy Books for Kids
Top Ten Books on Astronomy For Kids
Astronomy - this has to be one of the oldest and most fascinating sciences involving the study of celestial objects such as planets, stars and galaxies.
Astonishingly, even though astronomy is an ancient science, it took the relatively recent invention of the telescope to turn the subject into a modern science. Interestingly, this science is one that has been contributed to by both professional and amateur students. It is hard to think of any other branch of science where the amateur is able to make such significant contributions.
I have selected these Top 10 Astronomy Books for Kids for the way they impart information, learning and fun to their young reader.
These Children's books will I believe engage any child and perhaps start them on a lifetimes journey and fascination with the heavens above us.
