From School Library Journal PreSchool-Grade 2–Stella loves everything about space, and her imagination takes her out into the solar system at bedtime. She lands on a planet and meets tingly blue space bugs, but she stays safely grounded to Earth through on-and-off conversations with Dad. EARTH TO STELLA: DONT FORGET TO SCRUB BEHIND THOSE EARS! 'CHECK, said Stella, just before she dons her helmet, boards her chicken-shaped rocket ship, and starts the countdown to blastoff. EARTH TO STELLA: COULD YOU KEEP THE NOISE DOWN, PLEASE? What makes this story extra special is the poignant bedtime routine between father and daughter. Their bond is verbal and visibly loving, yet always filled with a sense of fun and a shared love of space. Children get a glimpse of the sun, stars, and a shooting comet. Everything will draw them in: the protagonists vivid imagination; the pages bursting with color; the innovative illustrations in pastels, crayon, and paint; and the dialogue boxes that resemble radio transmissions. A stellar choice for independent readers and groups alike.–Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL
