Ada and the Galaxies by Alan Lightman and Olga Pastuchiv, illustrated by Susanna Chapman

Ada and the Galaxies follows an inquisitive little girl named Ada who loves the stars so much that couldn’t wait to go to her grandparents’ home in Maine where she would be able to see them. During her long day of waiting to see the stars, Ada was able to see many things that she wouldn’t normally see, since she lived in a city. When night fell, so did the fog, and Ada was so worried that she wouldn’t be able to see the stars. To help pass the time, Ada’s grandfather, Poobah, showed Ada a special book of photographs taken by the Hubble Space Telescope of the stars and the galaxies.   

Join Ada and check out the night sky by reading this educational and beautifully illustrated children’s bedtime story.
