First Look at Space
By Anthony Parisi; illustrated by Paula Pindroh
Soundprints, 2011. Unpaged. Small picture book (board book).
This is an excellent board book with simple text that gives toddlers a pared-down explanation about space. It briefly talks about the planets, astronauts, the sun, comets, and the milky way in age-appropriate, accessible language that is perfect for two year olds. Soon, your toddler will be saying, "Zoom!" every time they see the page with the comet zipping across the sky. This and other books in the Smithsonian Institution series are fun ways to teach your child about their world.
