Program Type: Storytime

Look up and discover the wonders of the night sky. From ancient times to the present day, sailors have used the stars and planets to navigate their course. Come on a journey this week that will hopefully develop a curiosity about the great expanse of our universe. 

READ ALOUD: Zoo in the Sky: A Book of Animal Constellations by Jaqueline Mitton. Also, check out Hoopla and Tumble Book Library on the Library’s website for other books to enjoy. 

VIDEO: What are Stars? by Sci Show Kids. Find out what makes stars what they are, and take a tour of some of the most extreme stars in space!

ACTIVITY: On a clear evening, spend some time outside looking at the stars together. Make a star wheel or try a star gazing app to identify constellations in the night sky.  

 COLORING PAGE: Print the attachment and decorate with crayons, paint, stickers or whatever inspires you!
