My son is starry eyed...??

Dear Circ,

My son likes the sky. Sometimes we go out and look at the stars together. I started showing him the constellations, and how to navigate by the stars, then we migrated into Indian legends, Greek myths, and early exploration. Heck, we're all over the map. Now he's teaching me and learning things at the same time. It's actually pretty great, he's at that age where he isn't talking much, but it seems like he really opens up at night. It's a way to connect, you know? I really want to keep this up! Have you got a science kit for us?

Dear Schuy Walkers,

We do have a kit for you, a really great astronomy kit, that includes a small telescope! And as you have found out, the science kits can provide a family learning experience, a way for moms and dads to engage their kids and learn some science at the same time, right along side their kids. Just like bonding over bedtime stories and picture books, you can do it with our science kits. What a stellar opportunity to discover more about our universe and the fun and excitement of exploring something new!
