27 months - We always enjoy a good story about a little kids with great imaginations! ( )

The theme of this book seems to be imagination. Stella let her imagination run wild as she ventured through "space." Her father encouraged this by taking a trip with her before bedtime to meet her new blue bug friends. ( )

Stella has a big imagination that comes to life when her dad reads her a bed time story. ( )

Stella asks her dad to read her a bed time story but before she goes to bed she takes an imaginative trip to outer space. There she sees stars, meets new life forms, and flies a space craft while she still hears her dad calling out from earth things like, "EARTH TO STELLA. ARE YOU TUCKED IN TIGHT?" When she finally makes it back to her bedroom she asks her dad to take another trip with her, and he does before bedtime. The purpose of this book is to instill imagination into young readers. Today there are so many video games, movies, websites, etc. that are used in place of creativity and imagination. This books reminds readers how fun imagination can be. I am not sure that I would read this book in my classroom. I believe it would be better to read to a child before bed time or on a similar personal level because there is not much else to learn about it besides the power of creativity. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618585354, Hardcover)

It’s time for bed, but Stella has an important trip to make first. After she brushes her teeth, she climbs aboard her rocket ship and zooms off into space in search of adventure. She’s bouncing on the moon when her dad’s voice comes over the radio: EARTH TO STELLA: NO JUMPING ON THE BED! Stella lifts off again, this time traveling even deeper into space. But after a while she loses contact with Earth. What’s happening back on her home planet?

Kid-friendly, cute-as-a-button illustrations complement this humorous story about a girl with her head in the cosmos and a dad ready to bring her back down to Earth. This delightful father-daughter story will spark the imagination of any young explorer and is a charming choice for Father’s Day.
