This rhyming story explores the size of the universe and our place in it. From the great expanse of space to the tiniest grain of sand, the lyrical text explores the moving parts of the universe. The illustrations are bright and colorful, giving focus to the largest elements and the smallest.
The book ends by focusing on the child reading the book (or being read to), and their constant motion in the great universe. This is a great bedtime story for kids, with dark and peaceful illustrations of space, and a lilting text that lulls kids into sleepy dreams full of possibilities.
