Abstract: Young children are innately fascinated about the natural world, including being curious about the sky above them. Increasingly, museum educators, youth leaders, librarians, and amateur astronomers are seeking materials, activities, and resources to help them reach their very youngest audiences. One way to reach children is through literature, and there are a number of excellent astronomy-focused books currently on the market. In this interactive session, authors of several popular children's astronomy books will share their work. Have you ever wanted to use astronomy storybooks for your outreach efforts and need some good ideas? Have you considered writing children's astronomy books and want to know where to start? Then this session is for you!
