This gorgeous, expressive picture book shows the first haunting days and nights of the war in Ukraine from a child's perspective.

The child is scared, but will not be afraid. She believes in a higher power watching over them, keeping them safe--her astronaut. As she narrates, readers get a tender glimpse into a life on the front lines, one filled with love and trauma, fear and hope. A much needed perspective from Ukrainian author and illustrator.
