David Saint-Jacques: Hello! I’m David Saint-Jacques, Canadian Space Agency astronaut.
I’m also a dad to three children who love bedtime stories. It’s one of our favourite parts of the day.
Even when my work takes me far from home, I like to keep the ritual going. For me, it’s a special time to connect and books fuel children’s imagination.
And guess what? I’ll continue doing it from space.
It would be great if I could read them YOUR story!
The Canadian Space Agency invites you to write a story related to space.
Who knows? Maybe I’ll read it when I’m up there!
