The Darkest Dark by Chris Hadfield

darkOriginally published in: 2017

What it’s about: Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield as a young boy who wants to travel to space, but is afraid of the dark.

What made me pick it up: I’m a huge fan of Hadfield. He was so informative and entertaining while in space, and he is such a supporter of science and humanity now that he’s back on the ground. I highly recommend his great TED talk.

My favorite things: I got this as an ebook with narration read by the author, so I got to have it read to me which made it even more fun. I really enjoyed the all-too-familiar kid who is afraid of the dark storyline and how he realizes he’ll have to face that fear to go into space like he dreamed when he grows up. It’s a simple, sweet story.

Who it’s great for: Fans of Hadfield. Kids who dream of being astronauts. Littles afraid of the dark.
