There is something about the stars, and the universe that attracts our youngsters. In this volume, Florian takes on the subject of space through poetry. Enjoy !
The universe is every place,
Including all the e m p t y space.
It’s every star and galaxy,
All objects of astronomy,
(Each cat and dog and bumblebee),
All persons throughout history–
