My kids have always loved science and space exploration. For our science unit, I found myself searching for more space books to add to our collection. My kids love learning about stars and the planets, so finding a book that is kid-level can be kind of tricky. The books I found are perfect for homeschool lesson plans or to teach a young astronaut about all the wonders beyond our atmosphere! If you have wanted to start teaching your kids about space, in a fun and engaging way, now is an excellent time! Here are 11 books that teach kids about space.

I love incorporating books that are fun and educational and these are just that. If your kids love space than these are the perfect bedtime stories. Non-fiction picture books have a way of making learning fun and we loved using these books to jump start our lessons each day.
