Roaring Rockets (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition)by Tony Mitton
Rockets have power. They rise and roar. This rocket's waiting, ready to soar. Rockets carry astronauts with cool, white suits oxygen helmets and gravity boots. Blast off with more out-of-this-world couplets! This time it is machines that fly. In bright and bold illustrations that are as witty as the text, the animal crew roars and whizzes into outer space.

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?
Ibought as a gift to go with a toy rocket. It was inexpensive & by far the cutest story I picked out. Great purchase
