Storytime from Space

Ever wonder what a bedtime story feels like at zero gravity? Or what your favorite astronauts do to pass the time up there? Well, we have those answers for you thanks to Storytime from Space.

In these videos, astronauts lead your child through a great reading experience with a handful of great books. Here’s how they describe it:

Story Time from Space is a project of the Global Space Education Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit education foundation.

We send children’s books to the International Space Station.

While in space, astronauts are videotaping themselves reading these books to the children of Earth. These videos are being edited and placed on this Story Time From Space website- look under the heading ” Story Time Videos”.

Astronauts on the ISS will also conduct and videotape educational demonstrations designed by Veteran Canadian Astronaut, Bjarni Tryggvason, to complement the science concepts found in the Story Time From Space books – look under the heading “Science Time Videos”.
