Once the Dragon spacecraft payload is unloaded and stowed, an astronaut on board the ISS—orbiting Earth at 17,500 miles (28,000 km) per hour—will read the book aloud for Story Time From Space. The videotaped read aloud will be an online reading/STEM resource for children, parents, teachers and librarians around the globe.
ASTRONAUTS ZOOM! captures a day in the life of women and men astronauts, from when they awake in space till they’re zipped into their sleeping bags. Readers and listeners discover answers to questions like: How do astronauts protect themselves on spacewalks? What cool tools do astronauts use? Do they have fun? And more…
ASTRONAUTS ZOOM! celebrates diversity, inspires both language and STEM learning, and sparks imagination; kids can imagine themselves spacewalking, doing science investigations and engineering projects, and even eating floating pizzas. Children zoom alongside 38 diverse, international astronauts on the ISS, including the first all-women spacewalk team, first African American astronaut on extended space station mission, first Native American man astronaut in space, and first European woman to command the ISS.
ASTRONAUTS ZOOM! was the 2021 winner of the national DeBary Award for Outstanding Children’s Science Books. The book is distributed by Baker & Taylor Publishing Services.
