Reviews

PreS-Gr 1 Barton's thick-lined illustrations positively glow in this simple, lyrical picture book. A young girl declares her longing to ``fly on the shuttle into outer space,'' to live in zero gravity, ``put on a space suit , '' and ``help fix a satellite'' before coming back to Earth. Text is very briefa few words in bold face type per pagebut the familiar acts of eating, sleeping, and working become intense and special as she and the rest of the crew go about their business in the bright, stylized pictures. Beginning readers may stumble over some of the vocabulary, but the book's emotional appeal will have nearly everyone off and flying. John Peters, New York Public Library
