About Children’s Books

Space children's book coversYour Tiny Starfleet Officers Will Love These Books

For many of us, our love of space begins when we’re children. Maybe it was the first time you looked up and saw a shooting star, or an orange moon — or maybe it was the first time you heard Captain Jean-Luc Picard command, “Engage.” Either way, your love was encouraged and fostered and now you’re here, wanting to encourage another generation’s love for space . . .

Book cover of Where the Wild Things AreBeyond The Wild Rumpus: A Guide To Maurice Sendak Books

Despite being a child that did not agree with being naughty, Where the Wild Things Are became one of my favorite books. From Max in his wolf costume chasing after his dog, to wild things hanging off trees and roaring their terrible roars, I saw my desires enacted on the page. I wanted to roar. I wanted to act up and be bad. I wanted to be queen of the wild things. Except without repercussions . . . From BookRiot.com
