DayByDayNY is part of the New York State Library’s early literacy initiative. Songs, poems, crafts, PBS videos, and a daily read-aloud of an e-book are available, in English and in Spanish. The daily read-aloud is a real treat! Please take a look and listen!


Story Time From Space
Story Time From Space features books being read aloud by astronauts on board the International Space Station. A favorite is astronaut Serena Aunon-Chancellor reading A Moon of My Own as she floats in the airlock of the International Space Station with two spacesuits looking on as she reads! You can view this reading from the “Story Time Videos” link. You might want to check out the “Science Time Video” link too!

In general, books and activities at the Story Time from Space website are geared toward ages 5 and up.

One of our favorites, hear astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor read A Moon of My Own by Jennifer Rustgi while hanging out in the Space Station airlock.

The whole shebang. A list of all the astronaut stories read from the Space Station.


The PBSKids website features many previously aired PBS TV shows with children’s literature brought to life through animated readings. Arthur, Clifford, Curious George and many other classics can be found there along with new books and characters. PBSKids provides games and fun activities related to their televised books.
