  1. I am on the board and volunteer at the BASF Planetarium in Clute, Texas (Brazosport Center for Arts and Sciences). I bought your book to add to our read aloud library and we read it to children for Star and Space Storytime the weekend of the eclipse. The kids loved the book! It was a great addition to our activities that weekend preceding the eclipse. I am an author as well, so I appreciate a good children’s book!
