Ricky's Dream Trip is a fun book that is educational
too. When Ricky is asleep one night, he dreams that his Pop Pop
comes into his room and asks if he would like to go on a special
trip. They use Ricky's dream imagination and travel into outer
space, visiting all the planets in our solar system. Ricky learns
about the planets, space probes, rovers, asteroid belts, and much
more. There are lots of fun facts in this book, like the fact that
Jupiter has over 60 moons and at certain times of the year we can
actually see four of through a telescope.
This book is packed with information about our solar system, but
it manages to be fun and interesting to a child at the same time.
I really loved this book and believe I will use it over and over
with my children as we learn about outer space.
