My Review:

I Wish I Was a Spaceman! is a charming picture book told in rhyme.  It tells the story of a little boy who travels to space as an astronaut with his teddy bear.  The message of empowerment is a positive one.   The rhyming format makes this is a fun book for a bedtime story or a preschool classroom read aloud.

The illustrations by Dupali Dutta are bright and colorful.  The book is formatted with alternating pages of text and illustrations, so there are many engaging pictures to interest a child.

Young children are sure to enjoy this cute picture book.
