For every child who has ever looked up at the stars and asked, "What are they?" comes the story of a curious boy who never stopped wondering: Carl Sagan.
When Carl Sagan was a young boy he went to the 1939 World's Fair and his life was changed forever. From that day on he never stopped marveling at the universe and seeking to understand it better. Star Stuff follows Carl from his days star gazing from the bedroom window of his Brooklyn apartment, through his love of speculative science fiction novels, to his work as an internationally renowned scientist who worked on the Voyager missions exploring the farthest reaches of space. This book introduces the beloved man who brought the mystery of the cosmos into homes across America to a new generation of dreamers and star gazers.

That's my son's favorite word and that's what his review is of this book. He absolutely loves it and so do I. It's a simple yet lovely read and really sparks the imagination. At first I was worried that it would be wordy and too complicated for a young child to grasp, but after our first reading it's become one of our most read books. If your child is a space lover you definately want to make this a part of your library.
