Me and My Place in Space
By Joan Sweeney
Illustrated by Annette Cable

Review by: Shandra McKown

     Me And My Place In Space is a wonderful book for all of those little stargazers and even those who have never considered what is past the stars, moon and the dark! Its illustrations are bright and captivating, even for the oldest readers! This book is a playful introduction to space and explains what kids see in the night sky. The story tells of a little girl and her sidekick cat's travels to space to get an up close look at the moon, stars, and planets. The author, Joan Sweeney, with the help of illustrator, Annette Cable, has done an excellent job relating our galaxy to the planet we live on in kid friendly terms, so that children can begin to gain an understanding of what is really "up there". The book is filled with interesting facts that are not too scientific, but just right for preschoolers to grasp. The close of the story has several open ended questions that will get imaginations churning and would be great for additional discussion, an art project, or center time so that children could mesh their artistic abilities with their creative thinking abilities.
     This is one of my son's favorite books and it really makes me say "WOW!" As I am sure most of us do, I forget to take the time to see what is so amazing right in front of us and this book helps us to put
some of these great things into "real people" terms so that we can appreciate them all over again with the kids.
      I recommend this book for any child who enjoys looking at the stars, the sun or the moon!
