Nuts in Space (Hardcover)
Nuts in Space is about a band of animal space explorers on an important mission. This is perfect for the energetic kid that wants to laugh all the way through a book, and be part of the action. This picture book has a loose plot but is full of speech bubbles of the characters making jokes and getting into trouble. It's good to read out loud and for the child to start to read some of the bubbles themselves.

Will the crew find their way home? And, most importantly, will they get home before something happens to the nuts?
