Children’s Books about Space

My youngest son can’t get enough about outer space.

In fact, one morning he woke me up on the dead and dark silence of the night and whispered to me, “Mom, if a star went supernova near a black hole, would the supernova destroy the black hole or would the black hole suck it up.”

Seriously, folks. You can’t make this stuff up!

  1. My son has always been intrigued by space! We have several Space Encyclopedias in our collection! He is twelve now and still loves to learn as much as he can. His fascination has definitely fed my own! This is a great round up! Thanks for sharing! We will check them out!

    1. My son absolutely loves space… and is kind of obsessed about black holes. It’s awesome and hysterical (because of all of the questions) at the same time.
