This was a really good short story about a group of people who learn to work together at trying to live on a whole new planet. Kinda creepy, but I guess Jill Walsh meant it to be that way. Makes you almost wonder what you would do if you had to move to a whole new planet, and what you would take with you (Each person could bring one book, a change of clothes, two personal items, a cooking pan, a picture, small musical instrument, a pair of boots and tools). A neat, although sad in a way, story.

I read this book when I was in elementary school. I have now graduated from college and I still think of this book. It is an easy read just to relax with. I can't wait until my little girl is old enough to read and hopefully enjoy this book as much as I do.

This is one of my favorite books. I first read it in third grade. I liked it so much, it was the first book I ever read twice! It is all about a little girl whose family has left their dying planet to make a new start in a strange new planet. I thought it was very interesting and it encouraged my imagination.

We read this book in school a few weeks ago, and it was really good. Every one in my class liked it(even the boys and a girl that read this book before. She didn't mind reading it again.) I recomend this book to anybody who wants a good book to read. It has some science fiction and some realty things. When you read this book,you will have a mixture of emotions: happy (at the end and towards the middle) and sad (at the beggining, in the middle,and in between.

A thoughtful approach to learning to be green. A basic a day, makes for a very good start.

I was reading the reviews and had to also write one as well. I have since graduated from college, but have a sister who teaches 5th grade. We were at Barnes and Noble looking through books for her classroom for reading. I always think of this book when my sister mentions her classroom's readings. It is so great for the imagination and such a page turner that I still rave about it today! Excellent fiction book-and it is fairly short so you can finish it quickly since it is hard to put down!

I read this book for the first time in third grade. I didn't really like it a ::lot:: then, because I didn't get some of the things, but I re-read it in fourth grade and I loved it! It's kind of slow introducing but after the first seven pages it's really good. I personally think almost anyone would like this, but I recommend it to anyone who likes fiction, or anyone who likes anything to do with outer space.
