Do you have a child at home obsessed with space and astronauts? Now they can have Story Time from Space, with books read by an actual astronaut!
Story Time from Space is a project of the Global Space Education Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit education foundation. They send children’s books to the International Space Station.
While in space, astronauts are videotaping themselves reading these books to the children of Earth. These videos are being edited and placed on the website- look under the heading ” Story Time Videos”. You can also check out their “Science Time videos” for science experiments in space as well.
This is a great time to have a book read from space, as SpaceX just last week sent two astronauts into space to the International Space Station. You can see a video of the historic launch here.
