Moon Plane by Peter McCarty (ages 2-6)

A small boy watches an airplane fly overhead and his imagination zooms skyward as he pictures himself flying through the sky, soaring past trains, over oceans, all the way to the moon! There he becomes an astronaut exploring the wonders of the lunar landscape and the joys of weightlessness as he flies on his own. But though the moon is exciting, he knows that no matter how wonderful someplace else is, he'll always want to return home, where his mother waits for him with a big hug. Besides, he can always take flight again in his dreams. Caldecott Honor artist Peter McCarty creates a gentle story of imagination and homecoming in luminescent pencil-on-watercolor paintings. Your young readers and listeners will be enchanted as they join one little boy on his fantastic journey to space and back home, even as they discover that their dreams can take them anywhere.
