   Great Read Aloud with Awesome Message
A great book with a great message -- you are never too small, too young, etc to be helpful and have purpose! I believe it is written by an astronaut and that he received the idea for his book when he observed the mice on his real space mission. Iron Man's name is Meteor's, who loved it! Facts in the back teach children how animals were used in space. I've read this aloud to primary students 1-5. They all enjoyed it and had great, I wonder questions about our space program!
   loved it
My three-year-old daughter loves Mousetronaut. She received it for Christmas after we visited KSC in Florida. The story is very well written with the little mouse going from the hero to the underdog, she loves it. I don 't particularly like the style of illustration, but that is just personal preference.
   Children' Book
I bought this book for my great grandson's birthday and even though he is only 2, I thought it would be a really nice book to have and possibly encourage him as he gets older.
My niece is a kindergarten teacher and she thinks that this book is just grand. Her son is only two and finds this book exciting.
   Reading for Future Astronauts
It was written by a real astronaut, which is terribly impressive to small space nuts.
   Cute, but missing something
We enjoyed the story and it helps us to play too much faith. It is lacking in quality dialogue, which I think is what makes a story of a child. If you like wonderful stories for children about mice, check out Broderick and Ben and Me. These are much richer.
My five-year-old grandson loved this book. He is all about the universe and the planets. This author will follow this author in the future in this regard.
   So sweet!
Seriously, between the illustrations and the story, my mouse and space obsessed three year old was in love.
   Six year old space loving son loves this book.
Meteor is a blow in our house. His story has been the bedtime story since we were given it, with multiple daytime readings as well. My son glows when Meteor is selected for the mission, with every reading.
This is the perfect book for preschoolers interested in space : It is an amazing story with cute illustrations and was a nice break from all the non-fiction text I use in my UPK classroom during a two week period.
