Tiny Little Rocket goes on an extraordinary exploration through outer space. In the silver-finned rocket, the reader becomes the pilot zipping by the burning, golden sun, boosting further into space, and almost running into a meteor. Watch out! From the cockpit the quick-thinking pilot helps maneuver the rocket to safety through the solar system to find a spectacular view of Earth on New Year’s Eve, the world’s birthday.
This adventure-filled picture book beautifully depicts a ride through space. The bright neon colors pop against the black space backdrop in gorgeous illustrations full of detail and movement. Written in poetry form, this book will excite readers who love all things outer space and rockets. The back of the book includes a view of the solar system and a note about the age of the Earth. Tiny Little Rocket is an out-of-this-world ride that astronauts of all ages will not want to miss.
