Captain Freddy Counts Down to School

It’s Freddy’s first day of school, and he needs to get ready. But school is big, it’s far away, and it’s full of strangers. Luckily, Freddy remembers he has work to do—in space! When his mom reminds him to put on his shoes, he pulls on his moon boots instead and blasts off. Captain Freddy’s adventures in space may just make him ready for his big day back on Earth.

Beautifully illustrated by Joey Chou, this picture book introduces information about our solar system in a fun, read-aloud story that prepares young children for exciting explorations at school…and beyond!
