We have been through our fair share of Preschool Space Books. Bitty has been obsessed for months now and we check them out on the regular, not just for homeschool. So I feel like I have a few solid recommendations for preschool space books your little astronaut is going to adore!
Homeschool Preschool Space Unit Study
I shared all about our homeschool preschool space unit study in another post! Be sure to check it out if you want activity suggestions and craft ideas!
Our space unit study is something that anybody could do because we rely on books to be our main teaching tool, so don’t forget to check it out after you reserve some of the books below!
If you have a little astronaut in your home, go to your local library and check out some of these amazing books! You won’t be disappointed!

General Preschool Space Books
Homeschool Preschool Space books should have lots of information, plenty of big words, but still, keep things simple enough for little minds to start to grasp some concepts. Give your little astronaut any of these books and they will be very happy!
- Zoom Rocket Zoom
- What is the solar system
- Little Kids First Big book of Space
- Nat Geo Readers: planets
- Sun! One in a Billion
- Earth! My First 4.54 Billion Years
- The Ultimate Book of Space
- The Mysteries of the Universe
Bitty finds Mars really interesting, especially the fact that there are robots on mars right now! Mars is the perfect topic for some preschool space books as we are learning new things about it constantly! Who knows maybe your little astronaut will be the first person on Mars!
- *Hey Ho to Mars We’ll Go
- You are the First Kid on Mars
- Nat Geo Readers Mars
- Mars! Earthlings Welcome
- Curiosity: the Story of a Mars Rover
- Mars’ First Friends
We didn’t focus a ton on the moon this time around but there are some awesome preschool space books that talk all about it!
- Moon! Earths Best friend
- What the Moon is Like
- Birthday Party on the Moon
- The Moon Book
- Moon’s First Friends
- The Moon Seems to Change
You cant have a list of preschool space books and not have a bunch of stuff about astronauts! We really liked the books that talked about what it was like to train, work and live in space the best!
- Go for the Moon
- The Spacesuit
- The Darkest Dark
- Margot and the Moon Landing
- Astronauts Zoom – an Astronaut Alphabet
- What do Astronauts Do?
- Becoming an Astronaut
- Goodnight Astronaut
- The Ultimate Book of Astronauts
- Floating in Space
- One Giant Leap
This was the section that I think Bitty loved the best and we found some awesome nonfiction titles that were perfect for our preschool space unit study
- The International Space Station
- *Space Explorers Space Stations
- *Space Explorers Rockets
- Space Explorers Spacecraft
- *Professor Astro Cat’s Space Rockets
- On the Lauch Pad
This topic can be a little difficult to teach so keep your preschool space books about constellations simple and maybe use it as a chance to tell some folklore and legends!
Board Books for Space Tot School
Don’t leave space for your older kids! We started falling in love with space from a very early age and there are some awesome board books out there these days!
