Super cool! I think the parent wasn't sure if I'd like this gift, but I did! I may not have shown it as much on the outside as I did on the inside, but I love books and these are astronomy books! AWESOME! Read to your kids. Read yourself. Express excitement over reading and your kids will be lifelong readers themselves!

The Excitement of Books
Reading to your kids on a consistent basis when they are young and letting them see you excited while reading will produce adults who are excited to read. That's me as an adult. Take me into a library or used bookstore and I'm like a little kid walking into a toy store for the first time. I don't want to leave! I love books! I love to read! I dedicate time to reading each day! Yet I want more time to read than is available in my lifetime! The other day at parent teacher conferences where I work (I was the teacher), a parent gave me the two NASA published books below.
