The illustrations in this book are fantastic!! There were very few words in this book, but the illustrations alone could pretty much tell the story. The book is about a young boy who is in crowded lecture hall listening to an astronmer. The boy grows tired and bored so he steps outside and looks up at the night sky. I really like the quote by Albert Einstein at the end which says, "Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world."
This might not be a book that I would read aloud to my class, but it is definately one that I would like to have in my collection so that students are able to check it out themselves.
