If I were an astronaut, I would zoom into outer space! I would help fix the International Space Station. Dream big, and see what fun it is to be an astronaut.
Dream. Discover. Explore.
If I Were An Astronaut by Eric Braun is a wonderful book for little readers that celebrate these three words and more.
It’s a cute book with realistic and fun descriptions of an astronaut’s experiences geared for young readers. We liked it, and we think it would be a good beginner book for kids who are starting to explore astronauts and space. Most of the young readers that I have interacted with, have a phase fixed for certain things :). It could be a dinosaur, car, monsters, spaceship, or anything under the sun. I remember there was a time when my son was stuck with astronauts. Everything that we read or doodled at that time was around astronauts.
I wish I had found this book and the amazing story session by Story Time From Space back then. I absolutely love their storytelling sessions. You can listen to “if I Were An Astronaut” at their YouTube channel here.
The illustrations are gorgeous, we especially loved the astronaut created by Sharon Harmer. The colorful cute design of this book makes it a very appealing read for young readers.
Do give this one a try and let us know if you liked it. In case you are looking to buy this book, you can find it on Amazon here. Suitable for kids below 7 years age group, this one would also make a wonderful gift.
And in case your little one likes to doodle something after reading the book, we have a funky alien in the spaceship for you. Check out the step-by-step tutorial of it here. We will be creating an astronaut doodle for you soon.
