Astro Girl

By Ken Wilson-Max

This delightful story brings space travel up close for young children, and has a special surprise ending!

Astrid has always loved the stars and space.

“I want to be an astronaut!” she says.

While Mama is away, Papa and Astrid have fun acting out the challenges an astronaut faces on a space mission – eating food from a tube, doing science experiments, living and sleeping in near-zero gravity. Astrid can do it all!

Then it’s time to meet Mama at the airbase. But where has Mama been?
