Overview

Terra's mother is an astronaut with a promise to keep, and even though she is busy at the edges of the universe, she must rush back to earth in time for Terra's school play. Will she make it? This innovative picture book incorporates spectacular NASA photographs while exploring earthbound childhood concerns and dreams. And the order of the planets, the rhythms of the seasons, and the mysteries of astronomy are all introduced by the school play-a poetic production that classroom teachers will be inspired to duplicate. Readers have come to expect the moon from inventive picture-book artist Lynn Reiser-and here it is . . . in living color.

As Terra performs her part in a school show about the Earth and the solar system, her mother, who is an astronaut, hurries back from space with a special ending for the production. Includes actual NASA photographs from space.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Terra's mother is an astronaut, but as she kisses her daughter farewell before firing up her rockets, she promises to return that evening in time for Terra's school show, "Earthdance." Terra practices all day, and in the evening, in a green and blue leotard and toe shoes, she dances the part of Earth, with classmates dancing the roles of sun, the planets, and the seasons. The mother, true to her promise, arrives in time for the finale, with a picture of earth from her travels. The illustrations tell the stories of the mother's travels through space and Terra's show simultaneously, with adapted photographs from NASA opposite scenes of the children performing. It's a lyrical introduction to the solar system and a charming futuristic family story, although science is occasionally sacrificed to poetry, e.g., Earth is not "in the middle of the Milky Way," and it does not "turn the moon." Reiser (Cherry Pies and Lullabies, 1998, etc.) concludes with thumbnail-sized photographs she worked with; her lovely perspective on the universe and its mysteries is easy to embrace. (Picture book. 5-8)
