A Child's Book of Stars (1953)

No space flight in this one, just some great space art.

Barlowe, Sy. A Child's Book of Stars. New York : Maxton. (32 p.) 27 cm.

Sometimes the inspiration comes from a child seeing a place they want to go. Like a National Geographic article showing you someplace you never imagined. Space art in children's books gave children a new place to imagine. And best of all they were assured that this was a real place that they could go to some day. Science can be dressed up a little when presenting it to children and this book show some incredible places you could go.
