Astronomy @ Home

Join us monthly for a live, online Astronomy @ Home Storytime for children and their families.

ASP staff and special guests will read our favorite illustrated children’s books about the sky and space, as well as share fun and easy activities and sky observations that families can do together at home. If you can’t make it live, you’ll be able to watch the archived video if available. Any of the activities will always be available.

Round Like a Ball

Next Storytime: Tuesday, July 27 - 11am PT/2pm ET

Join us for our July Storytime! Round Like a Ball, written and illustrated by Lisa Campbell Ernst, offers a gentle tribute to our planet and a timely reminder that we all need to take care of it.

Activity after Storytime

We'll also have time for show-and-tell of natural objects! You're invited to bring a natural object - such as a rock, leaf, stick, feather, etc. - that you've collected from outside to share with the group after we read the book.
