In Starry, Starry Night, Doc McStuffins rushes to fix a telescope's blurry vision before a meteor shower starts.  As a World of Reading Level 1 reader, it features simple text and word repetition.  Despite being written for beginning readers, it still has a reasonably detailed plot as it is 32 pages long.

The topic of meteors is barely touched on, but Doc does provide a brief description.  Between that and the focus on fixing the telescope, this book could be a good starting point for discovering more about astronomy.  The book also provides a few tips about protecting your eyes, so it also has potential to be tied in with learning healthy habits.
