Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“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
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.
