Synopsis

A little girl travels from the comforts of her own home to the far reaches of the universe. The journey begins in Maria's house and then moves outward to the street, town, country, continent, hemisphere, planet, solar system, galaxy, and, finally, the universe. With each new widening perspective, children can explore the vastness of the world around them as they discover their own special place in space.

Margery Cuyler's accessible text and Yu Cha Pak's richly detailed illustrations offer an intriguing introduction to geography and astronomy for the youngest armchair traveler.
