Bedtime Story: There's No Place Like Space by Trish Rabe

Read for: Children's Book Challenge & it is of course a space story.
Synopsis: "Au revoir, Pluto! In this newly revised, bestselling backlist title, beginning readers and budding astronomers are launched on a wild trip to visit the now eight planets in our solar system (per the International Astronomical Union’s 2006 decision to downgrade Pluto from a planet to a dwarf planet), along with the Cat in the Hat, Thing One, Thing Two, Dick, and Sally. It’s a reading adventure that’s out of this world!"

My Review: This was a fun book for Munchkin in his outer space/ astronaut obsession. It reads like a Dr. Seuss book, even though it is obvious it isn't one of his, so that familiar rhyming and rhythm really falls into place as you are reading the book. It gives simple yet realistic descriptions for planets, stars, sun and constellations. It was a fun book to read and we have read it a few times in the past couple of days.
My Rating: This was a nice change up from the strict non-fiction books, while this is still facts it was put in fun rhymes and illustrations.  We give it a rating of Three Paws.
Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
