More than a delightful story, Captain Tommy teaches understanding and kindness. Tommy goes to "space camp" and meets John, a boy who seems "spaced out" and different from other children. The camp counselor makes Tommy the captain of the spaceship, and gives him the job of getting John to interact with the other space-kids. After several attempts, Tommy succeeds, and John shows everyone how to climb a "space pole" and slide back down. The kids are impressed, and John becomes a true part of the group, no longer "lost in space." Great for kids with spectrum children in their lives!
