This month, our Bookworms book club for second and third graders read Space Taxi: Archie Takes Flight by Wendy Mass. When Archie is 8 years, 8 months, and 8 days old, he is able to go to work with his father. He knew his father drove a taxi, but he didn't know he drove passengers in space instead of on Earth.
