Ziefert, Harriet

You Can't Ride a Bicycle to the Moon!: A Book About Space Travel

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Amanda Haley. This overview of space for young readers begins with the lunar basics and expands to include the history (and possible future) of space travel. Ziefert carries the playful tone through all four chapters, balancing factual information with poems and humorous turns of phrase. Haley's loose-lined watercolors add lightness and movement. A table of contents and discussion questions are included.
