Ever been afraid of the dark? It's a pretty common fear and author/astronaut Chris Hadfield addresses that phobia in The Darkest Dark.

He shares his own childhood experiences with young readers - at play as a busy astronaut 'saving the planet from aliens' and heading to Mars. But he didn't like going to bed in his own dark room, imagining monsters all around him. Sleepless themselves, his parents threatened to take away a longed for treat ... watching the moon landing on a neighbor's TV!

What young Chris Hadfield observed was that 'Outer space was the darkest dark ever.' And he learned that there's nothing to fear in imagination and dreams. Now he tells us 'The dark is for dreams - and morning is for making them come true.' His story sure is an inspiring one!
