3 out of 5 stars


This is a fun story about a young boy who is preparing for his first day of kindergarten. He is a huge space fan, and he envisions all of his preparations as if he is an astronaut preparing for outer space. This would be a great story to share with a youngster on the first day of kindergarten, but it could definitely use extra time and discussion to help young children make the space connections. A reference to NASA would probably be meaningless to most kindergarteners. The illustrations are vibrant and engaging.
