I love this book! (I know, I always say that, but if I didn’t love them they wouldn’t be on here. ) :) Why do I love this book? It rhymes and it has repetition which are awesome qualities to have in a book for getting kids ready to read and rhyming and repetition can make a book super fun to read, too. I also love it because the story gives kids a sense of where they are in the world…from the universe, to their country, to their street to their own bedroom. They are their “own little piece of the universe”.

I really like the illustrations in this book, too. I don’t know how to explain them, but the only word I can come up with is “retro”. I know, not very descriptive, but they definitely add a certain special something to the book.
