From The Midwest Book Review:
"Goodnight Spaceman" is a bedtime story from an educational series with a payload of space age information and education, in addition to glamorous space related skills, knowledge, and activities. An inspiring forward written by Colonel Cady Coleman, PH.D. and former NASA astronaut invites children to imagine themselves as explorers on the crew of Spaceship Earth, with abilities to do many fun jobs that explorers must do. Written in daring, descriptive verse and illustrated in a splash of starry, night-colored skies of space with travelers featured, "Goodnight Spaceman" is the perfect bedtime story for kids who dream of space and other exploration. The image of a goodnight space trip on a rocket ship pervades this bedtime adventure, with featured illustrations of genuine space shuttles, personnel, and equipment."
From Catholic Library World:
"The drawings are detailed and vibrant. The crew of the space station includes both men and women and a variety of ethnicities. NASA astronaut Cady Coleman wrote an introduction for the book. Highly recommended for public and elementary schools."
About the Book:
The perfect way to say goodnight to your little star gazers!
We’ll keep the curtains opened wide
And watch the starlight sparkling bright.
Let’s make a wish and say goodnight.
Goodnight deepest, darkest space.
Zooming through the Milky Way…
Goodnight spaceman, far away.
