Editorial Reviews

Review

"The coziest of quilts becomes a rocket ship in this gorgeous, mesmerizingly rhythmic read-aloud that explores a boy's small place in a vast world ... A dreamy-yet-instructive ode to the universe."(Picture book. 2-6) KIRKUS STARRED REVIEW

"A boy celebrates his place in the world in Reidy's soothing bedtime story ... The collaborators are entirely in sync as they remind readers that the universe and its wonders are theirs to revel in." PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"Before bedtime, a young boy ... takes his blanket, transforms it into a rocket ship, and soars off into the vastness of the heavens. Thus begins a cumulative tale that takes him out of this world ...Soft assonant sounds soothe the cumulative rhyme that parallels nighttime routines." HORN BOOK REVIEW

We love this book, and when we first got it we read it every day for weeks. The story is really precious and the artwork is beautiful with vivid colors. I highly recommend this for your child toddler and older.

The repetitive phrases lull us to sleep! Great way to increase vocabulary and science concepts also!
Will become a night time favorite.

Format: Hardcover
A very cute book explaining our place in the universe. It has a great flow and rhyme. My son loved to see how the little boy used his blanket into different modes of transportation. My 3 year old son, who is in love with space, loved this book. So glad we checked it out from the library. I can't wait to buy it for him.

Format: Hardcover
A quiet little rhyming story, with the rhythm of This is the House That Jack Built,
that explains a boy's spot in the big universe, as the boy prepares for bed.

"This is my country, with highlands and plains,
with farmlands and cities and highways and trains.
It sits on my continent, far and wide,
which kisses an ocean on either side,
on half the Earth,
which circles the sun,
which hides its face when the day is done,
while stars glow bright
and light up the night."

A gentle story, perfect for a bedtime read.
