Children don't want to read about history, or things that could happen in everyday life; they thrive on impossible stories. These impossible stories seem entirely plausible to them, because their imagination has no limits and they've never been told the harsh facts of reality. This is why I would like to focus on Galileo's relationship with his newly found celestial friends-- Sun, Man in the Moon, and the stars. Personification would give my children's book spread more characters, and interesting ones rather than the plain ole' ones he meets in real life. For all the kids know, there really could be a man in the moon. Putting such characters in my spread will encourage adventurous and creative thought amongst children. In my spread, the celestial characters will share their wisdom and tell Galileo their secrets. My hope is that the children whom read this book will desire a friendship or relationship with the unknown, too.
