Come Back, Ben

Hassett, Ann & John. Come Back, Ben. Holiday House. 2013. ISBN: 9780823425990

The story is about imagination and levels through Earth and space.  It is a fun way to learn where in the atmosphere each object is, although the story is, in fact, fictional.  The author's style is repetitive in order to keep young children connected to the story.  The illustrations are simple but eye grabbing.  Each picture centers in on the object the text is focused on.  The objects look like cut outs placed together.  I believe the book would be a fun read for preschoolers, Kindergarteners, or even first graders.  It is a good way to keep their imagination alive.
