Every night when he was a boy, JosÃ© M. HernÃ¡ndez would look out the window and stare at the stars. They were different colors: blue, yellow and white. Some were larger and brighter than others, and some twinkled as if they were alive. Later, when he saw man land on the moon on TV, he knew he wanted to be an astronaut. But JosÃ© struggled in school because his family moved constantly and he didn 't speak English. His parents were migrant workers from Mexico; they followed the crops up and down the state of California. JosÃ© was in second grade when his teacher convinced his parents to stop migrating and stay in the United States. She also encouraged his love of astronomy, books and learning. This heartwarming, bilingual picture book is sure to motivate kids to set goals and reach for their own dreams.
