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?
