The Boy Whose Head Was Filled With Starsis the story of Edwin Hubble, a boy fascinated by the stars. Edwin surmounted many hurdles to follow his dreams of becoming an astronomer and this gorgeous picture book doubles as an informative nonfiction easy reader book.
Using the insights of great mathematicians and endlessly observing the sky, he succeeded in confirming two things that altered human life forever: that there are more galaxies than our own, and that the universe is always expanding.
Hubble's message to us is to find peace in the vastness of the mystery surrounding us, and to be curious. "We do not know why we are born into the world," he said, "but we can try to find out what sort of world it is.”
