Written by Michelle Robinson

Illustrated by Nick East

Part of the Goodnight Series

Early Years

LoveReading View on Goodnight Spaceman

Tim Peake’s voyage to the International Space Station has caught the imagination of children everywhere and this picture book is perfect for the very young. Two space mad little boys getting ready for bed are careful to say goodnight to their daddy, ‘a spaceman far away’. In their dreams they climb aboard a rocket and fly up to the ESA to join their daddy and the crew. Floating in the starry sky they can say goodnight to the planets and the shooting stars before a final orbit past the moon and home time.  As ever in this deservedly popular series the rhyming text is perfect for bedtime reading while the pictures are particularly appealing. It also contains a letter to readers from Tim Peake, himself the father of two little boys, making it even more special. ~ Andrea Reece
