Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Children's Literature

Informational books don't have to be boring, and this book is a good example of one that is well done...Children will delight in the word play as they join a trio of wacky animals as they blast off into space.

Children's Literature - Shalini Murthy
Informational books don't have to be boring, and this book is a good example of one that is well done. Delightful rhyme and vivid artwork combine in this book to provide information about rockets-how they work, where they travel and what they do. Children will delight in the word play as they join a trio of wacky animals as they blast off into space. A picture dictionary at the end of the book provides information about the different parts of the rocket in a manner that is easy to understand.

    We picked this book up from our public library.

    Cute and easy to read. Loved the illustrations of the animals going to the moon to explore and making it back home.
     I liked the ending where it gives explanations to the Rocket Bits.
    K is big on space and so when he picked this book I knew he would enjoy it.
    The rhyming, the pictures all went very well together. This is a book that is perfect for all ages I would say maybe 3 or 4 to about maybe 9?
