Here to go - COSMOS
Ha you believe in God? You should check this out if you don't want to be so narrow minded and immature for the rest of your life.
Cosmos: A Personal Voyage by Carl Sagan.
Get them the DVD set of Sagan's Cosmos
It is available on Netflix
Seventy-six bucks at Amazon right now for the 7 DVD set.
Among my favorites are Cosmos, because Carl Sagan was the man and lives on in his presentations, and Penn & Teller: Bullshit because their style is both entertaining and informative, and showcases some remarkable WTF rampant in today's society.

Cosmos. It's a disgrace that the price is prohibitive though.
I have a few references for you to look at.
First of all, check out The Magic of Reality, it's Dawkins' new book, aimed at the younger set and is way cool.
Secondly, definitely watch Cosmos! I think that has the kind of appeal and general sense of wonder that you're looking to express. It is widely available for free should you know where to look. The library, for example.
As a science-oriented young girl, I liked Zoom! a lot. That's going to be a little harder to find, but it was really, really cool.
I wish you a lot of luck! I will ask my mother (a 3rd, 4th, and now 1st grade teacher) what her kids find the most engaging for science workshops. If you are anywhere near the NYC area, the Liberty Science Center would be a great hands-on resource.
better suggestion for a christmas present
The original Cosmos book by Sagan might be good here. If your friend likes that, follow up with The Pale Blue Dot.
If you want to to give your friend a taste, direct him to the Sagan Series, specifically, part 3: A reassuring Fable.
Your friend might also benefit from seeing Science Saved My Soul.
Worth it. I'm also too young and had to use netflix. I wish I'd known how amazing these are.
Buy her the cosmos on dvd. Worked for me.
Any questions? Okay, well, this isn't directly related to astrophysics but it is something you'd be more in a position to answer than most, and something I've been wondering about for many years.
The original Cosmos was a TV broadcast, and the latest and best iteration made available to the public is the DVD set from 2002. The quality of that set is poorer than it needed to be, because no effort was made to remaster the tapes the episodes were sourced from, despite the black borders and composite artifacts typical of those days.
Today we could, and almost certainly would do so much better. The programs exist as two different elements: Video recordings and film recordings. The video can be cleaned of its composite artifacts, and the rest, being film, could actually be re-scanned as high-definition, enabling Cosmos to be seen in a much more pristine iteration, and even, in parts, HD.
I can't think of a more deserving program, and it would help bring that venerable series up to visual parity with your superb followup. Do you suppose this will ever become a possibility?
Thank you for reading and of course for your invaluable contributions to science awareness.
how come none has mentioned Cosmos by Carl Sagan yet?
Here you go, I just changed your life. Seriously though, watching this at a [6-7] were some of the best moments in my life. it's like a contemplative, poetic odyssey of the mind from the infinitely small to infinitely large.
oh yeah -- IT'S ON NETFLIX.
Yeah - the one I have came in a cardboard box. Also - freaking expensive!
DO NOT BE
52$ used isn't bad
Wow this is a ridiculously awesome contest! And although I'm not a WoW player myself, I am a girl gamer, so I support your username!
Girlsplaywow is a jerk but not really.
I could use Lightroom for my photography. Or Cosmos for my nerdy viewing pleasure.
Also check out The Cosmos if you're after awe inspiring wisdom. It's a wonderful series, and Carl Sagan is a wonderful speaker.
