Kids' Books in Space!
This week, Earthlings gained access to new glimpses into the far reaches of the galaxy, thanks to new images from the James Webb Space Telescope. The pictures above, two of the images released this Tuesday, depict the Southern Ring nebula: a cloud of dust expelled by a dying star 2,500 light-years away. Learn more about the James Webb Space Telescope and explore more images at the NASA website.
With all of the excitement around these new revelations and what they mean for our understanding of the universe, we thought we'd share a collection for the astronauts in training!
From galaxy-spanning adventures to information-packed guides to the solar system to sweet stories for the littlest ones, these kids books are the perfect way to introduce children to the wonders of space or foster a growing curiosity about the universe beyond this world.
