The Aquanaut

 We loved this one! The story is about following your childhood passions, and discovering that they might lead you to unexpected (but equally interesting) endeavors. The author/narrator wanted to float through space and see the moon up close as a child. And while she didn’t grow up to be an astronaut as originally planned, she found that dream realized as an cave diving aquanaut and underwater photographer, scuba diving amongst moon-like jellyfish.

She achieved many of her childhood goals and explored her wonderings, it just looked a little different than she expected. Every other page is a two-page spread of wordless illustrations, and capped off with real-life photographs of her adventures in cave diving. For my kiddo whose current life ambition is to be a scuba diver, this was a huge hit!
