Tommy O'canyahearme (tomb24) | 3 comments My children (ages 3 and 2) have recently taken an interest in rocket ships, pirates, and magic. I want to jump on the opportunity to capture their imaginations early, does anyone have suggestions for children's picture books with a sci fi or fantasy theme?

some books that we already enjoy are The Antlered Ship and Ocean Meets Sky both illustrated the Fan brothers, Unplugged by Steve Anthony, and Please Bring Balloons by Lindsey Ward.

any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Think I might need to get this to add to my own personal collection of Star Trek books.
