The cutest little children were pushed in their strollers into Book Court to learn about planet hunting. Mostly, they sat in their mom's and dad's laps. One little boy, though, slept in his stroller, while another stuffed goldfish crackers into his mouth.
But they seemed to follow the talk. When I asked if anyone knew what pulled the planets and stars toward and away from each other, one little five-year-old girl yelled out "Gravity!" Wow, was I impressed!
They also drew some elaborate habitable planets, with trees, flowers, and water. One little girl even added big slashes of pink and blue for all the girls and boys who lived on her planet.
I was so happy to see younger children getting excited about planet hunting!
