I remember, growing up, I was fascinated with outer space. I didn’t care to much for other types of science but astronomy always caught my interest. My girls have followed suit. They love reading Outer Space Books, both fiction and non fiction, and like to memorize facts about each planet, the stars, moon, and of course the milky way!
