Children Ages 4-6 • 7 mins. • Unabridged • © 2016

Astronaut, author, and narrator Chris Hadfield KNOWS. He knows about the terrifying darkness of his childhood room and the deepest darkness of outer space. This intimate knowledge radiates from his narration. Listeners sense the fear in young Chris as he and his parents do battle at bedtime over the necessity for him to stay in his room, which is "very, very dark." Rest is needed by all so they'll be able to view a special event the following night on the neighbors' TV. This event inspires Chris's dream of being an astronaut and his life's work in the "darkest dark" of space. Would that his wonder at the majesty of the dark and the power of dreams inspires us all. An afterword from Col. Hadfield concludes the production. A.R. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2017]
