This is a sweet and simple bedtime book for a young child who loves space and wants to be an astronaut. It begins with a young boy thinking about a plane that he sees flying above him. He imagines himself flying that plane to the moon, getting out of the plane and taking a few steps, and finally coming back home to hug his mother and go to sleep.
Uses: while I don't think I would use this in the classroom, it is a charming bedtime book!
Medium: pencil and watercolor

This book was a simple read with relaxing illustrations. There were few words, but the illustrations told it all. ( )

A young boy sees a plane overhead and imagines himself in it, traveling all the way to the moon. What does he see on his way? With characteristically spare prose, Peter McCarty invites readers along for an imaginary trip from the earth to the moon and back again, visiting trains, planes, and boats along the way. McCarty’s luminous illustrations make the boy’s fantasy into a dreamlike journey that ends in his mother’s arms—a perfect way to end the day.
