This book is about a mother that goes on a trip around the universe to retrieve pictures for a her child's live show. During the show, it tells the story of how the planets spin, how seasons are made, and what the mother's trip is like. At the end of the show, Terra's mother had pictures of the different planets. The story ended with a description of how location can get more specific (Galaxy, planet, country, town, etc.).

This book is a good example of a fiction because it is not easy to travel in the space. This book is very good because it introduces the concept of aerospace to children and shows the real pictures. Teachers can use it to arouse students' interest in the space. This book is suitable for 1-4 grade students. ( )
