Meet Jeffrey Bennett. Bennett teaches astronomy, physics, and mathematics at the college level, has worked for NASA, and holds a PhD in astrophysics. He also writes books for children. And not just any kids’ books – his series “Science Adventures with Max the Dog” is out of this world!
Really, though. Bennett’s storybooks about Max’s space adventures are currently traveling through space on a commercial cargo-craft on their way to the International Space Station. Once they arrive, ISS astronauts will record themselves reading the stories for children back on Earth, launching a new educational program called “Story Time From Space.”
One small step for Max, one giant leap for readers everywhere!
