Written by an astronaut and based on a (partially) true story, this is a super cute book.
Meteor is the smallest mouse and is thrilled when he is chosen to go on the shuttle into space. While the other mice are scared, Meteor LOVES it.
My friend recommended this one and my kids all love it. A little wordy for MeiMei, so we just summarize, but that's possibly more because she asks for it so often, lol.
Excellent choice for kids who are interested in space.
