Hello, I'm Tim.
I'm an astronaut.
I've got a very special story for you tonight.
Would you like me to read it to you, all the way from space?
The story is called Goodnight Spaceman.
It's time for bed. Come on inside.
We'll keep the curtains opened wide
and watch the starlight, sparkling bright.
Let's make a wish and say goodnight.
Goodnight, shuttle. Goodnight, base.
Goodnight, deepest, darkest space.
Zooming through the Milky Way.
Goodnight, spaceman, far away.
Goodnight, Daddy's rocket ship.
Time to go, enjoy your trip.

Astronauts, please check your suits -
backpacks, helmets, gloves and boots.
Just imagine what we'll find when we leave our world behind.
Astronauts, prepare for docking.
Nearly there now, doors unlocking.
Come aboard and join the crew.
We've got lots of work to do.
Pull the lever.
Take it slow.
Push the button.
Off we go.
Goodnight, light years in between us.
Rocket ships and shooting stars, Saturn, Mercury and Mars.
Final orbit past the moon.
Goodnight, Earth. We'll be home soon.
One small step, one giant leap.
Goodnight, spaceman, time to sleep.
I hope you enjoyed that story,
which was written by Michelle Robinson
with pictures by Nick East.
I wonder if you'll dream of becoming an astronaut
when you grow up.
For now, though, goodnight. Sleep tight.
