IRA - 2006 Children's Book Award
Texas Book Festival - 2006 featured book

Peddicord travels a long, long, way,
past stars and glowing nebulae, into
intergalactic space-then, ultimately,
loops back to a special blue-green
planet 'graced by water, wind, and
air...' readers will be more than willing
to tag along...'

picture book..."

joyful testimony to a child's
progression is bound to appeal to a
preschooler's sense of pride in their
recent gains..."
