Carole P. Roman
Two little boys visit the stars and planets on a special rocket ship during the night. The words are written in a lyrical, poem style. The illustrations are colorful, fun, and fill each page. They draw the reader in to the story, fostering creativity and imagination. The font meanders across the page in a whimsical style. The story ends as the children come to rest in their little beds at the end of their journey with their toy rocket beside them.
Children will love the pictures and the easy flow of words. The book can also be educational as most of the planets with some brief descriptions are given in the poem. The colors of the illustrations are muted to provide a great backdrop for the bedtime story. The words flow smoothly and the story ends with a good closing for bedtime. Overall, my children really enjoyed this book and I enjoyed reading it to them. I would recommend this as a great bedtime story for young children interested in astronomy.
I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
