Our final week of summer storytime features stories about space and astronauts.
If I Were an Astronaut, by Eric Braun. Read by Serena Auñón-Chancellor from the International Space Station.
Next up is Pete the Cat: Out of This World, by James Dean.
Craft: Make an astronaut. Download the suit here or request one from the library. Color it and get help cutting out the center of the helmet. (Library’s is already cut out.) Put a photo of your face in that spot or glue it inside that circle without cutting it out – and you look like an astronaut! You can put a different picture there if you’d like. Maybe draw one of Pete the Cat.
