Astronomy Day is April 28th, and now is the perfect time to sit in your backyard and look up at the stars! This holiday was originally designed to teach the public about astronomy, and it’s the perfect holiday to celebrate with your kids! If you don’t have a telescope at home, or you’re looking for an easier way to celebrate Astronomy Day, I highly suggest you add these books to your collection! These books would also work well for a space theme if you want to repurpose them for another lesson. Here are the best books for Astronomy Day for kids.
