Barton, Byron. I Want  to Be an Astronaut. Thomas Y. Crowell, 1988. 32 pages (0-694-00261-5)

Ages 3-6

“I want to be an astronaut/a member of the crew/and fly on the shuttle/into outer space…” proclaims the young female protagonist of this simple poetic story of high aspirations. Barton’s bold figures of astronauts, shuttles, and satellites and Planet Earth are set against a deep blue background suggesting the vastness of outer space.  © Cooperative Children’s Book Center
