Read full description of the books:
This book is so cute. A little boy thinks about / treats kindergarten as if it were a space mission.
The boy prepares by doing situps while his dog quizzes him on his ABCs. He is seen buying school supplies and counting down to the day he leaves for kindergarten.
Today is liftoff. I suit up. Dad helps me with my gear.
"What if I'm not ready? What if we crash into a comet, or get sucked into a black hole, or even worse... my lunch floats away?!"
"You are well-prepared," says Dad.
Into to the rocket ship... the boosters fire....
The rocket ship is a mini-van which has a license plate reading: 321GO.
The boy looks determined.
I AM READY TO EXPLORE...

Wow. Did this book... have a lead in? To the main title screen? Just like a film? Wow. Cool.
We arrive at the base camp, then orbit while we look for a place to dock.
This means they are circling the parking lot.
I am assigned to my commander...
Commander = kindergarten teacher. We see him saying good-bye to his parents, who give him the Vulcan 'live long and prosper' hand symbol.
We're aliens from many galaxies on Planet Kindergarten.
We see the boy's classmates: a girl playing with paste, two boys with buckets/baskets on their heads, a manic-looking boy almost completely covered by a hoodie, a boy fingerpainting, a chubby boy eating a sandwich, and two smiling albino twin girls.
I could have done without this fat joke. Minus points.
Our commander tells us our flight plan for the day.
Mission control calls in on the intercom. They welcome us on our journey.
I try to get used to the new atmosphere, but it's not like home. For one thing, gravity works differently here. We have to try hard to stay in our seats. And our hands go up a lot.
I like how the boy is imagining the classroom here: with computers in the walls and his commander's desk looking like a control center.
At recess, we test the conditions outside our capsule.
The boy gets into a fight with his classmate and they are both put into 'isolation.' (Time-out.)
Back in the capsule we run some experiments, write in our logs, and then capture images for our families.
I wish they were here.
The boy has drawn him and his parents in space, in astronaut suits.
At lunch, I find out that I love space food!
My lunch doesn't float away, but our trash will, so we contain it.
The boy has a little trouble with naptime. He's too excited to sleep, so he starts counting stars. But he's homesick.
Is the room running out of oxygen?
"Abort mission!" I think. "You can't do this! Get out of here!" I spot the escape hatch.
But he thinks of NASA. FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION.
He sees an astronaut saluting him while standing on the moon/a planet and rocket ships and satellites are in the distance. There's a space-rover next to him.
If failure isn't an option, that leaves only - SUCCESS!
His parents come to school and take him home. He takes a bath - which he calls 'splashdown.'
I am back on my home planet.
I love it here, but I'm already training to go back to Planet Kindergarten tomorrow.
Okay, cute book!
There were a lot of things I liked here. The little boy imagining every situation as a space situation that he has to deal with as a NASA astronaut is cute. The language of the book is cute - calling the teacher 'Commander' and illustrating the classroom as the little boy sees it.
Tl;dr - Cute, fun. Great book for kids in kindergarten, starting kindergarten, or obsessed with space.
